Theme: Think it, Fix it

This event occurred on
March 14, 2020
Kano, Kano

Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking videos, networking and mind-blowing conversation.

When you look at Kano, the commercial piece in the massive jigsaw puzzle that is Northern Nigeria, you could easily figure out why it’s pretty difficult to fix it right where it should be; there simply are more problems than solutions. Now Kano have got the numbers and the variety, where then are the ideas lurking? The absence of adequate platforms made sure that they are left on cupboards where they gather dust and get forgotten behind cobwebs. Bayero University is one of such cupboards, if not the biggest one out there.
TEDxBUK is a platform that seeks to incubate more platforms.
