The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) is pleased to announce #PEBECHack, a series of Hackathons designed to solve problems at the intersection between government policies, processes and regulations, and the ease of doing business.
#PEBECHack will harness the creativity and vibrancy of Nigeria’s technology community to develop smart solutions that will help resolve some of the bottlenecks being addressed by the Council.
The first #PEBECHack will focus on developing a tool that will promote accountability and transparency among key Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) crucial to the success of Nigeria’s Ease of Doing Business reforms.
The competing teams would develop a service management solution that will allow citizens monitor, provide feedback, report, make complaints, and ‘blow-a-whistle’ about the quality of service received from key Federal Government Doing Business MDAs or at strategic locations such as airports, seaports and land borders.
Dates: 24th & 25th June, 2017
Location: Lagos, Nigeria
Time: 9am – 6pm each day
The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) was set up by President Muhammadu Buhari in August 2016 to implement reforms that would make it progressively easier for small and medium sized businesses to start and thrive in Nigeria. PEBEC also has a mandate to implement reforms that will ensure Nigeria moves up 20 places in the next World Bank Doing Business rankings, and to break into the Top 100 by 2019.
The Council is chaired by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and comprises of ten ministers, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, and representatives of the national assembly and private sector.
