The Zambia Drone Hackathon Competition, powered by BongoHive and The Global Air Drone
Academy (GADA), seeks to nurture creativity and hone entrepreneurial skills among Zambia-based
early-stage technology youth entrepreneurs. During this five-day virtual bootcamp, 30 qualified
participants will have the opportunity to learn from experienced drone professionals at GADA, a
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed drone services company based in the USA. This
comprehensive workshop will teach budding entrepreneurs how to relate this new technology to
real-world practical solutions, how to safely operate and fly a drone, and the best ways to market
their startup in 2020 and beyond.
At the end of day five, individuals will have an opportunity to pitch their business plan to a panel of judges, who will then pick a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.
To supplement and support the objectives of Drone Hackathon Zambia, a symposium will be
planned to broaden the dialogue with the drone industry and stakeholder community. Due to the
current limits on large gatherings, this in-person event will be scheduled at a later date.
Registration is now open for Drone Hackathon Zambia. Applications will be accepted until
August 6th, 11:59 PM.
