Open space for technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers in Nairobi.

Intel Shark Tank: Wednesday 11th December, 2013 | 6 – 8 pm | iHub


There are a lot of great app ideas in Nairobi that never get to be heard. Cool, potentially huge ideas that remain on smart developers’ computers or in beta because they’ve never gotten the relevant feedback to help those ideas to grow and scale.

We’re here to help with that.

Borrowing from the Shark Tank format, we’ll be hosting a fantastic panel of judges on Wednesday 11th December at the iHub to go over a few of Nairobi’s most interesting new apps. We’re looking for apps that were developed this year, which have not yet gone through the major tech competition circuit – we want fresh ideas, and in return we’ll help get you ready for the next big step. We’ll also reward the best apps, with prizes up for grabs such as:

  • Galaxy Tab 3
  • Asus Fonepad
  • Yolo Smartphone

The overall winner will also receive a $5,000 marketing package, in which an Intel-approved agency will create a marketing campaign for the app.

Sign up here to attend the event. 

We’ll also be saying goodbye to 2013 and previewing what Intel has in store for developers in 2014.  Join us for this sneak peek into how you can partner with Intel in the coming year.

    good plan, I saw this just an hour late, now I can’t register.. it’s an unfortunate and now with my exam time table,
    am an upcoming Android developer… I just love Android and the Intel yolo smartphone which am using for my practice…

    I have several apps in mind, I’d wish to have that Galaxy Tab 3…

    This is an excellent idea.

    Why not take it to the next step and actually invite serious people who meet a budget threshold (say 5k, 10k and 20k US$) then have them make offers for % shares in the developers businesses?

    He he. You guys could even invite KISS TV, see if they will make a show out of it. You guys could do a series of say 12 episodes, broken down into three pitches per episode.

    Anyway, just saying; cool idea.
