In coming days, Tekedia will be scanning and reporting what is happening in the domain of social media and technology in Uganda. This was as we promised last week. We begin today by introducing the fascinating Mobile Monday Kampala branch. Kampala is a big city in Uganda.
Mobile Monday Kampala (MoMoKla) is a community of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influentials fostering cooperation and cross-border business development through virtual and live networking events to share ideas, best practices and trends from global markets.
MoMoKla was formed on January, 20th 2010 by a group of 40 founding members consisting of professionals in Uganda’s telecommunication, academia, media and ICT sectors. The chapter was launched officially on March 8, 2010 (Women’s Day).
Mobile Monday Kampala has the following objectives:
- To encourage innovation within the mobile sector.
- To facilitate networking between small and large companies, and between local and foreign.
