BarCamp Kenya 2.0 - Conversations



Over the last few months, we've had discussions with various techies, entrepreneurs,
and just kawa guys about why Kenya is still lagging in terms of ICT innovation and
entrepreneurship.

This BarCamp, we'd just like to have a CONVERSATION with all of you.

Moderated by Dr Kamau Gachigi, we would like you all to come and help us brainstorm
through issues, and hopefully find the causes & solution to start fostering ICT innovation.

Some of the questions we have been asking ourselves:
- why don't we have a culture of innovation
- what is wrong with the education system
- why don't we have enough ICT entrepreneurs eg software & web-app companies (our own facebook ?)
- why are we lagging behind in e-commerce ... why don't we have a payment gateway yet

Date: 24 November 2007
Venue: Strathmore University, Room 34
Time: 9.30am to 2.00pm
Moderator: Dr Kamau Gachigi
