GE created the Garages program in 2012 to reinvigorate America’s interest in invention, innovation, and manufacturing. In 2014, Garages went global with three weeks of workshops amidst a fully equipped fab lab in Lagos, Nigeria, at GE’s regional headquarters.
On October 27th, 2014, GE will expand on past successes by evolving the program into six weeks dedicated to accelerating the impact of Nigeria’s most promising entrepreneurs. Working with a variety of world-class instructors, investors, technical experts and partners, participants will build a culture of collaboration and innovation and bring their wildest ideas to life.
The program’s select participants will directly interact with the latest manufacturing technologies – including 3D printers and laser cutters – that enable innovation through rapid prototyping, which will transform Nigerian industries. The Garage also provides access to advanced hardware and Nigeria’s greatest mentorship network, supporting entrepreneurialism with an aim to drive growth across all sectors of industry.
The deadline is Sunday, October 19th, and participants will be notified of their program acceptance by Thursday, October 23rd.
