On the 12th November, six teams from the second training program competed among themselves for a seed funding from Nokia. We had two guests from Esoko; Vincent Chinedu Okonkwo – software engineer and Bernard Adjei, reviewed the various projects and gave the teams feedback. Various projects were developed during the September training program. Teams had one month to develop a compelling business case and a prototype of their ideas. Most of these projects will be rolling out in 2012. Watch out for these projects;
