The MEST Incubator has over the past year, made a few announcements, which are aimed at opening up its doors more to the wider Ghanaian tech community. From organising the MEST Talks, to allowing MEST Incubator Business-In-Residence companies, the folks are on a new course with the MEST Show & Tell.
Show & Tell is an event series at the MEST Incubator where members of the Ghana tech and business ecosystem come share what they’re working on with the entire community. The event is free and open to the public.
This week, the MEST Show & Tell hosts some Googlers and Facebookers. Details of the events are as follows:
The Facebook Rotational Product Manager Program
The Facebook Rotational Product Manager program is designed to instill new and diverse perspectives at the helm of product development at Facebook. RPMs spend 18 months rotating as product managers on the most high impact products at the company, developing unparalleled knowledge about individual products and the company’s objectives as a whole.
Please join us for a Show & Tell presentation where a few of 2015’s Facebook RPM class will talk in depth about topics like:
- How Facebook approaches Product Development
- Executing company-wide pivots at Facebook
- What the Instagram team is working on
- Move Fast culture at Facebook
We’re excited to share some of our Facebook-specific experience with some of the brightest entrepreneurial minds in Ghana and learn a bit more about what you do as well!

Getting Started with Firebase
To reach a broad audience, you need to consider multiple mobile platforms, in addition to the web. To build for these platforms, you need a backend server that can scale if lots of users log in. Then you need to find new ways to spread the word to get more users for your app. And then you need a way to measure all that user activity, keep track of app crashes, all this while figuring out how to monetize!
Google’s Firebase has all the tools you need to build a successful app by providing you with a unified app development platform that helps you:
- quickly develop high-quality apps
- reach new users, and keep them engaged
- scale up on infrastructure to meet that demand
- and earn money
Come join us to learn how Google’s Firebase can handle these essentials for you while you spend more time building apps your users will love.
