A hackathon with iRise in Mogadishu

Together with a colleague at the World Bank, I ran a small project aimed at supporting the Mogadishu tech community. We proposed this project to the Youth Innovation Fund and were supported with a small grant to carry out the project.We worked with Awil Osman at iRise Hub to put together #MogadishuWatt, focused on using technology to solve energy issues in Somalia.

We wrote another blog post with information on some of the interesting tech projects happening in Mogadishu: blogs.worldbank.org/ic4d/node/762.
