Also, Ozi, a web application that helps businesses acquire, engage and manage customer conversions all from one place, emerged as the first runner-up, carting away the sum of $3,000 while Zander, a web-enabled and user-customised response AI tool for automating social media marketing/management and all brand campaign processes, emerged as the second runner-up with a prize of $2,000.
The co-founder of Aremu, Tosin Adelowo, stated that the win served as a validation of the enormous potential in Nigeria’s creative sector and commended Eko Innovation Centre for providing the MarkHack platform.
