Delft University of Technology Netherlands launches Africa weather stations competition.
You are cordially invited to join us at the Brainstorming Session focusing on weather stations.
What is a weather station?
An observation post where weather conditions and meteorological data are observed and recorded.
The event takes place on Monday July 15th at Ndiambour Hotel, 121, Rue Carnot Dakar, from 4pm to 8pm (Nogou diner will be offered)
Purpose of competition
The Trans-African Hydro-Metrological Observatory (TAHMO) initiative aims to design, build and operate 20,000 measurement stations in Africa. From a technical point of view, this is possible by making use of mass-produced consumer electronics and the extensive mobile phone coverage through most of Africa. The value produced by this network will be high but the benefits will be distributed diffusely. In order to make the network a success, financial sustainability is essential. This is where African entrepreneurs will play an important role.
During the “TAHMO business brainstorms and contest” entrepreneurs, innovators, creators and technology enthusiasts will be actively invited to share their ideas during two separate brainstorm events about the following questions:
From the brainstorming sessions events, TAHMO will pick the best ideas from the entrepreneurs in August 2013 through a competition.
- Business Model Ideas
- Tech Solution for Weather Management Solutions
A Prize of 5000 Euros will be offered to be best Business Model idea
Time: Monday 15th of July from 4pm to 8pm
Where: Ndiambour Hotel- Dakar - 121 Rue Carnot
The idea is to have tech entrepreneurs in a room brainstorming on creating a Business Model around weather stations around Africa.
Entrepreneurs will brainstorm on ideas around price, data and business model.
We will ask these main questions at the Brainstorming sessions
At the event we would explore modalities for the competition and how you can participate. It will also be an opportunity to meet potential collaborators that you can work with on solutions to enter into the competition.
