Startup Weekend Mahajanga

We dit it!

It wasn’t easy but we finally did it. One of my most anticipated event for our team as we prepared it for a very long time.

The event

We were coaches for the 3 days event in Mahajanga; our talk was about Ethics in Data Collection. All the participants were divided in 11 teams which had their own startup projects. As coach, we helped them by giving advises according our respective expertise area.

The talk

We had the chance to visit each one of the teams during our coaching. But we had a surprise! We expected a classic talk to every team at the same time but instead, we had to talk to the teams one after another. Also, since it’s not a lecture, we had to adapt our talk for each team according to their project and questions. It was a new experience for us but very fulfilling as well.

Christino coaching  participants

We had way more participants than we expected and they were more receptive than we thought! It was great and it was very fun for. We also had the pleasure to learn a lot from the other coaches and the participants.
Participants also showed interest in our community and asked many questions about our mission and objectives. Some signed up to join but less that we predicted.

In conclusion, it was a great event for us and we are planning to do another one in Fianarantsoa as well.
