Announcing AL for Infrastructure’s Technology for Infrastructure Hackathon 

AL for Infrastructure is excited to announce a new partnership with Hindsight Ventures and for the second edition of the AL for Infrastructure Hackathon to create Technology Solutions to Tackle Africa’s Grand Infrastructure Challenges.  

This hackathon focuses on leveraging the power of collaboration and technology to develop solutions to some of the challenges in the Manufacturing, Environment, Retail & Supply Chain, and Financial Services sectors in Africa. The hackathon presents an opportunity for high-impact young leaders within our community to use their unique skills to create innovative solutions for challenges within these thematic areas while also amplifying their voices as the change agents who will change the course of Africa’s development. 

This is a special call to young people across the community to take advantage of the opportunity to bring their innovative ideas to life through the eight-week hackathon where they will be supported by a team of coaches and mentors from partner organisations.
