Fusion Friday

Fusion Friday is a community initiative by ReDahlia Workspaces.

Fusion Friday is designed to create an atmosphere for entrepreneurs to connect and share their experience. It is about networking.

It is about broadening your business knowledge. It is about creating a fuse for lasting business relationships. Hey you get to see me for free :-).

Fusion Friday (FF) happens every last Friday of every month.

You walk in and get a desk and free internet to do your work at no charge. The internet is supplied by Main One which in my own opinion is the best in Nigeria.

Send an mail to contact@redahlia.com for more information.

What should you expect from FF
• Business Ideas Sharing
• Entrepreneurial Stories
• Games
• Refreshment

Venue is at ReDahlia Lounge, ReDahlia Workspaces at 43B Emina Crescent Off Toyin, Ikeja, Lagos.

Celebrating My Dad’s 70th Birthday

Dad's 70th Birthday

I will be the first to admit that the above picture isn’t the most flattering. It was taken after a long day at church. This photograph was an amateur shot taken by my cousin.

Yesterday was my dad’s 70th birthday anniversary. It was a long and stressful day. From cooking the day before to getting the clothes ready I will say that events are really stressful.

Special thanks to my mum and sister. It would have crashed without them.

 

Technovation Nigeria Celebration Event 2017

What a great way to wrap up the #Technovation2017 season at no other place but Microsoft Nigeria. The whole journey is worth celebrating. The passion, commitment, dedication and innovation of young girls bringing relevant solutions to societal problems is worth celebrating. As a Region (Nigeria) we looked forward to hosting the maiden edition of the Technovation Regional Pitch Nigeria with the venue lined up and all the logistics covered.

Although, we could not get up to 10 teams required for a regional pitch, we decided not to give up on a celebration event for these young heroes who have invested so much of their time and energy to make this season impactful as well serve as beacons to many young girls in Nigeria. We had taken the girls through 5 months of intensive work starting on December 19th and by the time the entry closed on April 26th, we felt that a final goodbye would only be proper.

Today it is my pride as a Codemaster to say goodbye to an amazing team of young women. Its been a long journey. Along the line there were clashes but I am happy that at the end we are all friends.

The Regional Celebration Event held today Friday 12th May 2017 at Microsoft Lagos, Nigeria organised by Pamela Chukwuemeka the Regional Ambassador, Technovation Nigeria who worked tirelessly through the #Technovation2017 season to get more girls productively involved. They were gracious enough to let us have their conference room. But I would be remiss to leave out Wragby Business Solutions & Technologies Limited, Lagos who let us use their facility as an incubator for the Technovation workshops we needed to hold with the various teams.

For the 2017 season, we are done. The rest is in the hands of the judges. The first round of judging will close on the 14th May 2017. After that we will wait for the announcement of the Semi Finalists.

You can find the story of today’s event on Storify. We are on Twitter and Instagram so make sure to follow us there.

As you all know, I am passionate about game development. So it is my pleasure to be one of the organizers of the Global Game Jam Lagos 2017.

The event page shows that the event is already sold out but if you are interested in participating, just show up. One important tip to add about the venue is that it is beside the Raumplus showroom.

If you know nothing about game jams and are searching for resources, this link will help you come up to speed.

We will be posting updates from our Facebook page. We hope to see you at the venue.
