Nyaba King Mark

The TIC Summit was the best experience I have ever had in my life. I enjoyed every part of it ranging from the teaching right till the pitching of our projects. I sincerely loved the tutors and learnt a whole lot of things both tech wise and socially. Personally it was a super great experience and I intend partaking in the next competition and possibly winning.I advise and encourage everyone to take part in the TIC Summit as it is a great innovative environment for young minds

Fondzenyuy Beckline

I’m called Fondzenyuy Beckline and I am currently a student. My team was one of the finalists and winner of the Hackathon competition. We designed a website which connected farmers and consumers directly. The Tic summit for me was not only a competition but made me learn how to identify problems in the society and look for their solutions. I thought it was just a competition, but I also learnt how to express myself and speak in public.

Funwi Kelsea

It was a fun challenging experience which left me with a lot of mind blowing insights on tech and innovation and the drive to go out there and change the world by solving problems.
