m:lab By Simeon Oriko / July 22, 2011
Wireless Wednesday Event with Gustav Praekelt
Gustav Praekelt is the founder of Praekelt Digital – a company that develops mobile solutions for emerging markets. He co-founded one of the early digital interactive studios in Africa and was its technical director for 10 years.
Praekelt Consulting works with the profit making industry to provide creative solutions such as TV on mobiles, advertising, amongst other solutions requested by clients.
His belief in the power of mobile phones to transform Africa inspired him to establish the Praekelt Foundation – a technology incubator that develops robust, highly scalable mobile solutions for social good. Praekelt Foundation programmes have reached over 50 million people across 15 countries in Africa.
The event will begin from 12 noon till 1.30 pm at the m:lab balcony and is intended to be a focus group discussion between the m:lab incubatees, the *iHub_ community and industry stakeholders.
This is designed to make the discussion meaningful and practical to the participants and as such, the event is invite only. To get an invite, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
