Team LSFlow has emerged the winner of the #SecureLagosHackathon organized by the Lagos State Education Trust Fund (LSETF) in partnership with First City Monument Bank (FCMB) and Passion Incubator.

The Hackathon was organized to encourage the creation of technology-based solutions to help secure the lives and properties of people living in Lagos, improve the operations of existing security agencies, as well as provide employment opportunities by promoting entrepreneurship amongst the youths in the state.

The 3-day event which began on Friday, May 18th and ended Sunday, May 20th saw applications from over 200 tech-inclined participants with innovative ideas.

Each presentation made covered Problems, Market Opportunities, Approach/Solution(s), Team Content, and The Resources Needed to Succeed.

After the 3 days of discipline, mentoring and hard work, Team LSFlow (Group 3) emerged the winner of the Grand Prize of N2,000,000 courtesy of FCMB. The second prize was won by Team Abo Eko (Group 8) who took home N1,000,000.

According to the Team Lead, Techspace Ecosystem Business of FCMB, Babajide Asegbeloyin, FCMB has pledged its continued support to the development of Nigeria’s Techspace Ecosystem.

“Tech businesses have unique needs, especially at startup and incubation stage. FCMB provides bespoke support at the different stages of the journey and we are very passionate about providing the right solutions to the tech ecosystem. Our mandate is to be the preferred and go-to financial institution for the tech ecosystem.” –Mr. Babajide Asegbeloyin.

The security of any city is key and so it is understandable that Lagos, being the tech hub of the country, would make security a priority for stakeholders in its tech ecosystem. Hopefully, the winners of the #SecureLagosHackathon would fine-tune their projects with the cash prize won and provide innovative solutions to the issue of security in Lagos and Nigeria as a whole.
