Once again, participants gather at Innov8 Hub, fully immersing themselves in the third TETFAIR Bootcamp. The paramount objective is to elevate their prototypes to unparalleled levels of refinement. Over the span of two weeks, participants will engage in close collaboration with accomplished experts and mentors at TETFAIR. This synergistic effort aims to meticulously refine their prototypes, enhancing the potential for these innovations to evolve into prosperous ventures.
