KOPFADEYEMI CHALLENGE 2016
This was the first ever African Healthcare (Challenge) ‘Hackathon’ at Google Campus London, launched with support from the World Economic Forum Global Shapers [London]. https://wef-kopfadeyemi-challenge.eventbrite.com
After a kick-off event on Friday evening, teams had till Sunday afternoon to work on the problem/challenge that an African Healthcare business had shared. The team that presented the best solution on the Sunday afternoon, as determined by our expert judges, won the weekend competition and challenge prize.
Typically, a hackathon (a hacker phrase) is an event where teams of computer programmers collaborate and compete against each other to come up with the best solutions to a stated problem in a short time frame (~24-72 hours). We instead, had participants (from many different disciplines) compete over a weekend to come up with business, policy and tech solutions for Healthcare businesses and organisations operating in Africa.
A weekend Challenge is not for everyone. Only the most passionate and driven make time in their busy schedules to participate and develop great ideas. These are the people you want to work with, solving healthcare challenges across the Continent. We were lucky to have a diverse mixture of participants from all over the skill spectrum.
Nothing like this has ever been done before.
This is the start of something truly magical and revolutionary.
This programme is part of the Kopfadeyemi Fellowship, in development with Kings College London and Chatham House.
This Healthcare Challenge directly supports development and innovation in healthcare for the African continent. It enabled our high-calibre participants to discover and engage with a wide diversity of African healthcare opportunities in a fun and challenging environment that promotes collaboration, intelligence-sharing and innovation.
