The 8th edition of Lagos State EHINGBETI 2021 is set to hold in less than a week, and preparations are ongoing in order to achieve a successful ‘first-of-its-kind’ virtual economic summit.
In the coming days, Techuncode in partnership with the Lagos State government wants to organize a preparatory Hub activation ahead of the three-day event slated for 16th 17th and 18th of February 2021.
According to Techuncode, driving a conversation within smaller tech communities and hubs creates another opportunity for the government to interface with citizens and get solid feedback and opinions on pressing issues.
These recommendations can subsequently form a critical aspect of the government’s response to those issues in time. Hence, the importance of this program.
Doubling as a platform where youths and young adults can address and collaboratively engage key arising matters in the society, the activation program will be broken down into 8 series.
This hub activation series will, however, be hosted by different tech communities and hubs across the State, allowing interested persons to join any within close proximity.
While the series will be held through the days ahead of the main Ehingbeti event, it will feature seasoned speakers from different fields and works.
Themed “Digital Transformation Solutions for Smart Cities”, this particular series will be hosted virtually by GoDo Hub on Friday, February 12, 2021.
The event will kick at 10 am prompt and will span through noon. Click this link to register.
Key speakers to grace the event include Idowu Akinde (Life Coach | Founder, Boolean Labs), and Ommo Clark ( Founding CEO, iBez) both of which will address the subject matter in depth.
Addressing the need for this initiative, Techuncode GM, Arinola Gelor said that “We believe every tech community cluster in Lagos should be engaged towards the Ehingbeti Economic Summit as they form a major stakeholder in the economic development of Lagos State, so we decided to co-host this Activation event.”
Techuncode also believes that the initiative is another way of mobilizing stakeholders within the industry with a greater purpose of achieving collectively, the “Lagos dream.”
Supported by other corporate entities including Africa Tech Radio (ATR), Teksightedge Ltd., and Beyond Perception; the activation series promises to be an interesting one.
You can as well attend any of the other activation programs slated to hold in other communities or hub (click this link for full details and schedule)

About EHINGBETI Economic Summit 2021
The annual Lagos State Economic Summit, popularly called EHINGBETI started in 2000.
The summit began as an annual event and because of the importance attached to the Summit and its resolutions, it has changed from an annual Summit to a biennial Summit in order to give some time for the State Government to respond to commitments that she made. However, the summit was last held in 2014.
The Summit itself has a rich history and it is of even greater pleasure to note that it has been hosted continuously since the beginning of the millennium in the year 2000, and is now firmly established as a credible forum for the stimulation of economic growth in Lagos State.
