The Hague Tech Connects
Thursday 19 April 2018

The Hague Tech opens its doors to two African startups with the aim of generating opportunities for business, knowledge exchange and the bolstering of international investment in both countries.

This event is an outcome of The Hague Tech strengthening a relationship with South-Africa last year, by signing up a partnership with the Cape Initiative of Innovation and Technology (CiTi).

Curious how Dutch start-ups and scale-ups can have access to a home base for doing business in Africa and the other way around? Africa, as a continent is one of 10 fastest growing economies and the place to be for tech startups. Do you want to know what opportunities lie for your business in Africa or do you want to exchange knowledge on doing business in Europe?

Meet the startups:

GiftedMom (Cameroon) is democratising health information access in emerging markets through an AI-based remote medical support platform.

Langbot (Ethiopia) is a gamified and AI powered language teaching chatbot. The chatbot is currently available on Facebook Messenger and teaches French.

This afternoon you can join these two African startups and The Hague Tech’s partners in our Lunch Pitches and Interactive Lab Sessions programme. The African startups are looking to learn about the European eco-system, indulge in accelerator and investor opportunities and want to connect with you!

Software Development the Dutch way

Software development is one of those skills that every company is hungry for. Thousands of recruiters are scrolling LinkedIn looking for the perfect software developer. If you live in The Netherlands, where the shortage of tech talent is so tangible, finding the right engineers is a very critical task.

May the Acceleration Commence!

November 19th marked the start of World Startup Factory’s latest accelerator. The goal? Taking the sustainability of our cities to the next level.

Three Wolves, A Monkey, and a Dung Beetle Walk into a Hackathon

Hackathons are an incredible medium for creating new ideas, new friends, and finding out about yourself. As a semi non-technical person (i.e. I don’t code, at least not yet) I’ve always looked at hackathons with a sense of awe, as an unapproachable event that I always wanted to participate in. Well, I finally got my chance and it was an absolute blast!

What was the hackathon all about?

The co-working space as a platform for a token economy

Tokens can become a reward for those that contribute to the community. A community member can earn or sell within the ecosystem when interacting with the community ecosystem (as in: the wider network) or within the co-working space.
