On Saturday, January 21st the Global Shapers Managua Hub will be partnering with various local organizations to host Nicaragua Tech Summit 2017, a premier event that will expose Nicaraguans to innovative leaders and ideas from the technology space, while providing tangible tools to launch a business. More than 400 individuals are expected to attend from universities, NGO's, businesses, and public sector organizations. Speakers from leading technology organizations such as Google, Uber, Airbnb, Facebook, and SMPLCT Labs will be joining us to discuss different topics such as: building a culture of innovation, lessons on how to scale your technology business, the fourth industrial revolution, and disruptive business models. In addition, we will be launching two new tools: (1) Emprende 2.0, the first free of charge entrepreneurship mobile application developed by Core Systems that provides a directory of organizations that support entrepreneurship in Nicaragua, as well as access to local business tools/resources and (2) the first Nicaraguan entrepreneurship guide that will be shared with various nonprofit organizations and universities. The event will conclude with a NTS Shark Tank event where three Nicaraguan technology startups will pitch their business ideas to a panel of experts and one of these competitors will win the grand prize. We hope you can join us!  Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NicaraguaTS/
