YTECH100 2017: NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN TO CHOOSE THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST IN THE NIGERIAN TECH-ECOSYSTEM
It has been another year of amazing feats within the technology space in Nigeria. Without doubt, the past year has been the most important one within the technology eco-system – from Mark Zuckerberg’s visit to Andela, the Nigerian techie has been at the forefront of remarkable stories coming out of the continent.
Now in its fourth year, the #YTech100 is an annual networking event honouring 100 of the brightest and best in Nigeria’s technology industry – those who have done nothing but inspire us in the past year. The event which is one of the highlights of the Y!/YNaija Innovation Season spotlights ideas, vision, and impact of the sector and also drives interaction on the factors that have helped leverage opportunities and potential in the local and international market.
This year, the nominations have been thrown open to the public. Anyone can nominate a techie of their choice to be part of YTech100 2017.
Here are the rules as set down by the organisers:
- The project/start-up that your nominee is working has to be something new, not necessarily that we have not seen before but done differently
- How much impact has that project/start-up had within the past one year?
- What exactly makes this project/start-up unique?
You have to answer these when nominating the techie of your choice.
The organisers of YTECH100 say that ideas, projects or startups on localhost or in stealth mode are not eligible. Nominations have to be about people that are making impact through live projects in the last one year.
