GetReady was one of the presenters at the digital village opened from May 16th 2016 on the occasion of the International Conference “Invest in Cameroon, Land of opportunities”, which took place on May 17th and 18th in Yaounde, Cameroon. For three days, this exhibition site, awaiting over 5,000 visitors, gathered different speakers and players in the Cameroonian digital economy. The main objective was to present the assets of our country in this sector, to promote the expertise of Cameroonian start-ups and to support young people in the digital economy.
GetReady was selected to showcase their work in empowering young girls and getting more of them into STEM fields. In particular, we showed our stand’s visitors how to improve the quality of education using Information and Communication Technology.
