m:lab Wireless Wednesday Event

1 Comment

The m:lab will from this Wednesday, host a frequent meetup dubbed Wireless Wednesday.

Wireless Wednesday is m:lab’s attempt at getting our incubatees, members of the iHub community, industry stakeholders and thought leaders to engage each other in a focus group discussion on various themes in the mobile space.

The event is community sponsored and will in part help us achieve our objective of providing mentorship opportunities for our incubatees and extend the same to the ihub community.

We will host the inaugural Wireless Wednesday on 20th July 2011, where we will host Mr. Tonny Omwansa, a respected thought leader in the Mobile Money space who is currently writing a book on the same topic. Tonny will engage the m:lab incubatees in discussions arising from the concerns in his upcoming book.

The event will be held at the m:lab balcony from 12 noon to 1 PM. The event is only open to members of the iHub and m:lab community and a few spaces for invited guests from the mobile money industry. We will record video’s of the event and put them up on the web later for anyone to freely access.
