360º creative collective, Livespot360 has announced plans to host the maiden edition of UNCODE, an experiential tech-focused lifestyle and knowledge exchange event series on September 2nd, 2019 at the Alliance Française, in Lagos.
UNCODE, put together by Livespot Digitech, the data-driven and innovative digital division of Livespot360, was created especially for digital enthusiasts, creatives, and futurists who desire an avenue for cultural technology synergy in Africa. The event, according to the organizers, will help thrust Nigeria ahead of the digital curve.
The full-day event will feature tech leaders including Iddris Sandu, Tech Virtuoso that built algorithms for Uber, Instagram and Snapchat; Co-founder of BuyCoins, Ire Aderinokun; Head at Africa Fintech Foundry, Segun Adeniyi; Co-founder of Andela and Eden Life, Nadayar Enegesi; and Yvonne Alozie, Director of Programs at Gitgirl.
“With UNCODE, we are creating a platform for Nigeria’s top tech industry and creative players to come together to inspire new ideas that will serve as an accelerator for change. We want the participants to seek boundary-breaking ideas that will provide sustainable digital solutions for Africa by Africans, ushering in a new era of globally relevant, yet locally developed technology solutions,” remarked Deola Art Alade, CEO of Livespot360.
“To achieve this, the speakers and facilitators for the maiden edition of UNCODE have been carefully selected to ensure that everyone that attends the event gets to share in their (speakers’) wealth of knowledge and experience.”
UNCODE seeks to inspire, educate and mentor local talents in digital and creative fields while preserving culture for truly indigenous and unique creations. The series affords attendees a practical and insightful guide to impacting our society, using technology as an enabler.
