FSA at AAST in Egypt
On the 21st of October, our FSA in Egypt attended the welcome party for freshman students at AAST. This was a great opportunity for the Firefox Student Ambassadors to share Mozilla’s values, introduce them to the community and show their work. With more than 500 attendees and 100 membership forms filled in, this event was a great success! Have a look at the pictures here.
FSA recruitment in Ivory Coast
Last Wednesday was AWESOME on CERAP Inades campus, in Ivory Coast!
Our FSA Abbackar and his Firefox Club organised a recruitment event on the campus aiming at sharing Mozilla values and of course, recruit eager and motivated students. Our Mozillian Brian Hui was one of the speakers at the event to introduce Firefox and its OS and, show how it differs from other browsers and operating systems. This was a successful event which led to 50 new contributors! Congratulations team!
Growth Hacking Workshop
The Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC) held a Growth Hacking Workshop on October 28, at TIEC Premises in the Smart Village Building. Growth hacking is a marketing technique developed by technology startups which uses creativity, analytical thinking, and social metrics to sell products. It is seen as part of the online marketing ecosystem, as in many cases growth hackers are using techniques such as search engine optimization, website analytics and content marketing. Have you been there? We’d love for you to tell us more!
