  • BarCamp Diaspora is now FREE

    On December 22, 2008, over a hundred young Ghanaians met in Accra for BarCamp Ghana ’08 to exchanged ideas on entrepreneurship, innovation and development for a rising Ghana. This summer, the conversations move to Washington, DC to bring together the African Diaspora to exchange ideas on doing business in Africa.

    Join us at BarCamp Diaspora ’09, under the theme “Investing our talent where it counts”.

    When: July 25, 2009 from 12pm – 6pm
    Where: Kenney Auditorium, School of Advanced International Studies – Johns Hopkins
    1740 Massachusetts Ave., NW
    Washington, DC

    You may participate online at the conference website if you are not close to the Washington DC area.

    A BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering where attendees meet for discussions, demos and networking. Unlike a typical conference, at a BarCamp everyone is both a speaker and a participant. The content is provided by all attendees based on their interests, unified under the theme.

    BarCamp Diaspora ’09 is a FREE event for anyone who is interested in using their skills, talent, and resources to benefit Africa. It will provide a great opportunity for the African Diaspora to network and collaborate on projects.
