Startupweekend Antananarivo : Startup Weekend is Back in Madagascar
This post originally appeared on blog.up.co
After a few years in standby, thanks to Google For Entrepreneurs, Techstars and the entrepreneurs community, Startupweekend is back to Antananarivo, Madagascar :-)
For its 10th birthday, StartupWeekend comes with new and fresh design so we also want to bring fresh ideas with this new ChangeMakers edition that will take place 11th,12th,13th of August 2017 at Etech an IT company located in Antananarivo.
Madagascar, the beautiful island is sometimes known outside as a the country of "Moramora" where everything follows its own slow pace. With local potical and economical issues, the country was ranked among 7th lowest GDP (PIB) according to the IMF (International Monetary Funds).
Dear malagasy changemakers, startupers fellows, with this initiative the organizers aims at gathering alltogether all small entrepreneurs in Madagascar and bring change.
For most startupers, the real problem in Madagascar is not investors (dont forget that google, Apple, Facebook started wih a few guys and few computers). The real issue is the lack of support and help. That's why this year, the Startup weekend wants to emphasis this by making strong partenrship with local and international startups such as Bridge For Billions or Entr'up, companies that can help startupers stay on the line and succeed.
Lets join forces and bring changes !!!!
