It is an initiative of MTN Uganda that is designed and implemented by Outbox to champion and support local entrepreneurs that are addressing challenges using mobile technologies. We call on software developers, designers, project managers and marketers to participate in the hackathon.
The initiative is structured to consist of a 3-day hackathon for teams to build solutions in five thematic areas that include M-Agriculture, M-Health, M-Media, M-Education, M-Finance, and M-Agriculture.
The first edition of the MTN App Challenge was launched in 2015. The second edition of the challenge took place in May 2017.
