Recent studies have shown that Africans access majority of their online services on mobile. The statistics show that people spend more time on their mobile phones than watching TV or using their computers. This is due to the portability of mobile devices and the ubiquitous nature of mobile technology.
Your business model can make the difference between world-leading success and dismal failure. If you are just starting out a business or already running one, the leading question on your mind is how do you make money. This might sound like greek to you but it is important that you understand what a business model is and most importantly find one that works for you.
Head over to their blogs to re-live the event. You will be glad you did :).
So, what’s happening at MoMo this Monday? It is an Open Day? Yes…you have asked for it and we have listened. Are you working on a service / product / app or have just launched your services / products / apps in the last few months? Then, you don’t want to miss this. We are giving you an opportunity to present you service / product / app and get candid feedback from the tech. community.
It is the time of the month again that we meet to discuss one of the technology trends in the world. This month is not different. The February event will be focusing on Location Based Services and how it affects our lives and businesses.
Location-based services (LBSes) have been blossoming — both in functionality and in number of users — over the past several years. And Nigeria has had its share of this. Also, there has been many un-answered questions in the mind of people.
We have teams from Vconnect, Mocality and TimbaObjects on ground and they will be shedding more light on the following:
- What is “Location Based Services”?
- What are the uses of LBS?
- LBS and your daily life & Business
- LBS offerings in Nigeria
Have you always wanted to start a technology business and don’t know how to go about this, then you don’t want to miss the January 2012 MoMo event. The knowledge required to start and run a technology business is not written in any training school syllabus nor most textbooks. It is more of a culture and language that we have evolved with over the years.
January 2012 MoMo meet-up is therefore setup to help you learn the basics of what you need to do on this journey. We will have business owners on ground to share their experiences on starting a technology business in Nigeria. They will also be available to answer all questions that you may have.
This is a follow-up to the last event and will be an interactive session where you can network, learn and ask questions on everything you want to know. Our panelists will try to answer as many questions as possible.
