When we first got started with hosting Mobile Monday Yangon, like any other community organizers anywhere, our largest problem was space. Or rather, the lack thereof. We switched locations often and learned a lot about what worked and what didn’t work for us, from an event organizer’s point of view, from each place. The same rang true for other activities organized by ideabox and Code For Change Myanmar. Having constant access to a good space for all our events was high on our priority list, especially for Mobile Monday.
Enter SuleTech, a Myanmar community tech hub where everybody can come to do anything interesting with technology in Myanmar. At 6000 sq ft, it is home and office to three spaces: ideabox Myanmar, a startup incubator which also organizes lots of startup programs and events including Mobile Monday Yangon. Phandeeyar, a Myanmar Innovation Lab, will also call the space home (they’re also hiring, by the way!). Lastly, Suletech will also host a co-working space with a coffee bar and a HP lab.
We’re pleased to announce that all future Mobile Monday events will be hosted right here at Suletech.
Recently, we hosted Mobile Monday Yangon Mobile AppExpo 2014 at SuleTech with more than 100 participants coming to experience AppExpo with us. Despite the numbers, the space was still large enough for an additional capacity of more than 300 people. We’re excited with the possibilities brought by access to the space, and have pencilled in several amazing events for the coming year.
There will not be any Mobile Monday events in December. Happy holidays, stay awesome. See you all next year at Suletech!
