Activities

The I4G Hackathon is an opportunity for African techies to leverage collaboration as a tool to solve problems by building solutions using a given API for a chance to win amazing prizes.
Ingressive for Good is looking to recognize and celebrate individuals and companies in the tech community that are  positioning themselves as pillars of the community and contributing to the overall African tech ecosystem.
One of our goals at I4G is to place 5000 tech talents in jobs. The job fair will allow tech talents the opportunity to meet hiring managers, pitch themselves and get hired.
