Miss Geek Africa is an entrepreneurship competition that originated as Miss Geek Rwanda in 2014 but was renamed Miss Geek Africa in 2017 and has expanded to 22 countries in Africa.
Last year, the winner of the Miss Geek Africa 2019 competition designed a mobile platform that can enable expectant mothers to monitor their health during pregnancy.
The platform is connected to a smart bracelet, which checks the woman’s vital signs and sends them to an emergency service provider in real time.
The dates for the final events will be announced later.
