mFriday”s continuous contribution towards enhancing the start-up scene in Ghana has once again not gone unnoticed. The Israeli ambassador to Ghana, recognising this, presented the mFriday community with copies of the book “Start-Up Nation”. The book tells the story of Israel”s miraculous economic progression amidst a constant state of war and little or no natural resources.
The books, which were signed by the Israeli president, were presented to mFriday by the co-founders on behalf of the ambassador. Some of the outstanding start-ups in the TechHub received copies of the book. A copy has also been placed in the TechHub library so any member of the community can get access to such an exceptional case study of Israel. A book club was formed immediately afterwards and will go on to meet the Israeli ambassador in January, 2014. This will casino online represent an opportunity to discuss lessons learnt from the book and probable applications of these lessons to Ghana and Africa as a whole.
The day”s meeting ended with a recap of mNotify”s feats in Rwanda and the presentation of three of the latest projects of mFriday. These are Vane, Geo-reminder and Ordio. Vane is a personal mobile assistant/concierge which helps in the discovery and planning of interesting places to visit in Ghana. Geo-reminder is a mobile application which alerts you of action items based on your current physical location. Ordio is an entertainment app that empowers musicians and stakeholders in the creative arts to connect with their fans directly.
