Google Africa team performed their prestigious Africa Connected event at the University of Nairobi’s Taifa Hall this morning. The event is an initiative by Google and partners to promote the value of the web in the lives of the people of Africa by sharing success stories powered by the web.

Students discovered more about being innovative and got some inspiration from the five best performers in Africa who doubled up as the chief guests. The five; Sitawa Wafula (Kenya), Eunice Namirembe (Uganda), Eric Obuh (Nigeria), Eseoghene Odiete (Nigeria), Christopher Panford (Ghana) were voted the best from over 2200 submissions after an exciting period of six months. They emerged best on the basis of having the most innovative business projects and ideas in Africa. Each of them went home with $25,000 from Google, in a move to empower them to take their businesses and ideas to the next level.

The event was a success thanks to the Student Google Ambassadors from the University of Nairobi.
