‘Drone Hackathon Zambia’- a Virtual Business Competition for Young Zambian Entrepreneurs

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.
