Google is expected to host its second ‘G-Ghana’ event, following the success of the two-day web event in Accra last year.
The event is part of Google’s goal to make the Internet relevant and useful to Africans, and to developing meaningful products for Africa.
At the event, the company will engage with cutting edge Ghanaian businesses and developers to highlight the entrepreneurial opportunities presented by the Internet.
Several hundred Computer Science students, developers, entrepreneurs, marketers and journalists have been to G-Ghana, which will take place from April 28th and 29th in Accra.
The theme of the conference, which would be held at the Alisa Hotel North Ridge, Accra, is “Local Growth and Global Impact”
It will feature some of Google’s best engineers, product managers, business managers and leadership speaking about Google’s open web and mobile technologies.
Attendees will have the chance to explore Google’s latest industry tools through a combination of tech talks and breakout sessions.
Key among the speakers will be Estelle Akofio Sowah, Country Lead, Google Ghana, Joe Mucheru, Lead for Google Sub Saharan Africa, and Marcus Foster, Mobile Product Manager, Google UK.
According to Estelle Akofio-Sowah, “Forums such as these bring our Google specialists together with a diverse group of Ghanaians, to share their knowledge and build on our efforts to make the internet part of everyday life in Ghana. It is an excellent opportunity for both developers and entrepreneurs to learn more about the enormous potential of the web.”
