Living in a pretty busy society as ours has however hindered us from paying the much-needed attention we need to as regards our health and physical well being.

In respect to this, saw the need to bring to a large capacity of participants at the TechpointBuild the important benefits of having a healthy lifestyle. had the maiden edition of Techpoint Build — an annual convergence of startups, innovators, makers, technical entrepreneurs and all industry stakeholders across Nigeria.
