    Why do we charge a small application fee?

    Is paying the application fee a guarantee to participate in the workshop?

    No, sadly we cannot promise that you will be accepted to participate. However, you will have access to the very special gala party in Abuja after both workshops in Lagos and Abuja. At the gala teams will pitch to a selected jury, listen to a panel of successful women in tech and entrepreneurship talking about the Future of African Women in Tech and Entrepreneurship, network, and dance the night away to live music acts. (not including transport)

    What happens when I get selected to attend the 3-day workshop?

    Once you have received the confirmation that you have been selected to take part in the workshop, the next step will be to arrange the payment of your participation fee for all 3 days which include loads of goodies so that you feel truly taken care of while you are with us. You will access all workshops and presentations, yoga classes and of course food and beverages. Food for brain, food for stomach - it is all arranged for you. (*transport to and from venue is not included)


    As soon as we have received your payment, you will be notified and receive your participation info pack with all the necessary details.

    "The feedback we received from the young women who participated in the Hackathon was really positive. It is small acts, such as opening up this event to young women who are in or who have been through the asylum process, that takes down barriers and helps with integration and in this case skill development."

    ~ Caroline Reid Irish Refugee Council
