MakeMeWake (MWM) is being established to serve as a practical resource for Nigeria’s growing cohort of innovators. It is a next-level extension of the ImpactLabs Summer Workshops. As Nigeria is the country with the largest concentrated population on the African continent, there exist several infrastructure, health and economic problems. Many of these problems can be solved with creative approaches to low-cost product development. MWM aims to provide a central meeting place for like-minded individuals who are trying to fix these problems, both for urban and rural communities. The vision is that such a space would not only provide equipment for prototyping, but would also encourage idea-sharing and collaboration.

MWM will launch in 2018.
