It’s undeniable the influence that technology has had in transforming the Nigerian fashion industry from flailing elite club to a free for all for young and emerging designers. It is particularly unprecedented the influence that social media applications like Instagram and Facebook have had on Ngierian businesses. So far Nigerian tech industries have stayed largely aloof of the growth and pervasive influence of tech in fashion spaces, that is until TechCabal.
If you don’t know who TechCabal is, and I wouldn’t blame you, they are Nigeria’s leading tech website and player owning the online community Radar, led by the super stylish Bankole Oluwafemi. They’re finally putting their money where their mouth is and partnering with the Tajudeen Adepetu owned cable network Spice TV to bring Nigeria’s first fashion tech incubator series.
They’re inviting young techpreneur who are creating technology for fashion and its adjacent industries to apply for a spot on their Spice TV showcase/event where the chosen ones will get to showcase their prototypes/finished products to fashion industry insiders and enthusiast and get much needed international screen time on Spice TV’s cross-continental cable channel.
The showcase is an adaptation of Spice TV’s already established industry “Happy Hour Series”
Submit your details using the form here and tell them about your company.
If chosen, you will be invited to present your company and idea to a crowd of fashion and technology enthusiasts and professionals at out Fash x Tech Happy Hour event on September 26, 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria.
Good luck boys and girls and don’t fuck it up.
