Hey All!

We are thrilled – super thrilled – to kick off our 2019 run of events with our Campfire Speaker Series where we invite makers like yourself to talk about products they’re building in a conversational setting.


B is for Building

Why this is for you

If you are a curious individual interested in how impactful tech products are built, especially those tailored towards Nigeria and emerging economies, then this event is for you. We are marking a date in our calendar for makers, entrepreneurs, developers, designers, tech enthusiasts and so on to meet and learn from each other to aid in the building process.

Why do a campfire speaker series

Since the birth of BTNG, we have noticed that the challenges and problems encountered by our speakers are unique and cut at the intersection of various circles. It can be visualised as follows: An enterpreneur in diaspora building products inspired by or for the emerging economy market whilst juggling problems of market penetration, addressable market, technical issues, and a variety of difficult problems. This series aims to shed to light on what those issues are and how strong founders are aiming to tackle that.

It’s not a sales pitch

Unlike many other types of makers’ events, we have an aversion to product sales pitch and we have structured this event in a way for people to learn from each other. That is learning from the speaker and the speaker learning from you.

What are you working on/What are you learning/What help do you need?

At our events, we encourage people to talk about what they are working on or currently learning or what they need. If you are building something on the side or learning about concepts/tools/methods to build impactful products, then we would love to help in some way or form through the power of our community.

Do not feel pressured if you are not currently building as most people started from a blank slate. We hope this event and many more can inspire you to build things that will have an impact.

Where is the fire?

Tickets are free but limited. We are excited to host it at Google Campus on the 3rd of May.
If for any reason, you cannot make it, please let us know so we can allocate your ticket to someone else.
