Event: MoMo Kampala Presents: Research & ideation to design & development innovation: lessons learned
Dear MoMo Kampala Delegate,
On behalf of Mobile Monday Kampala I would like to thank you for contributing to making our MoMo Kampala meeting, Research & ideation to design and development innovation: lessons learned another truly memorable event.
Thanks to our Chair, Sean Paavo Krepp, Grameen Foundation Uganda Country Director who did a superb job of moderating the meeting, and to Sean and the AppLab team who played a major role in organizing the event. Thanks to Victoria University, their Executive Director, Simo S Dubajic, for hosting at a most inspiring venue with every facility, and thanks to Orange Uganda for sponsoring the delicious catering, by Endiro Coffee and supplying the Orange Internet everywhere to over 170 delegates. Thanks to Media 256, Isaac Oboth, for sponsoring the filming of the meeting, thanks also to SMS Media for their fantastic reception crew who welcomed delegates and handed out the MoMo name tags, thanks also to Mountbatten for sponsoring the hosting of MoMoKla.ug, and to Joseph Owino and Douglas Onyango our webmasters. And thanks also to Yo Uganda and UGO for their continued sponsorship and support.
We are grateful for the warm welcome extended to delegates by Victoria University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr David Young, and we extend hearty thanks to our Guest of Honour, the Honourable Dr Ruhakana Rugunda, Uganda’s Minister for ICT, for opening the meeting and giving opening remarks that set the scene.
I am sure you will agree that it was an exhilarating evening, with a scintellating keynote address given by frog founder and Strategy Director, Ravi Chhatpar, who was visiting Uganda from Shanghai,and a fine presentation on Design in Service Delivery by Design without Borders’ Project Manager Kristoffer Leivestad-Olson, who had come from Oslo, Norway, at –20 degrees Celsius, with the fifty degree difference in climate it was quite an abrupt change and challenge.
I am glad to announce that the Programme for our Design and Develop MoMo, with bios of speakers, together with presentation slides, and photos on our carousel, have been available since almost a week, and quite pleased to announce that the keynote address is available on YouTubeYouTube of MoMo Kampala Design & Develop Keynote with Ravi Chhatpar. Congratulations to Isaac Oboth and the Media 256 team for an amazing job of putting together the film. Have a look.
