You know, as a startup especially in tech and in this era of ‘Disrupt’ there are events that you just cannot afford to miss! TechCrunch Disrupt has helped many startups get mileage and be exposed to some of the worlds greatest technology company founders, venture capitalists and investors.
This October 2017 TECHCRUNCH BATTLEFIELD AFRICA is coming to Nairobi!
This event, sponsored by Facebook, is calling on all startups in Sub-Saharan Africa. TechCrunch is bringing its experience with Startup Battlefield, one of the world’s premier startup competitions, to Sub-Saharan Africa to discover great early stage companies that have created technology to solve problems and develop the ecosystem within the region.
The African continent is rich with diversity – in language, culture, and perspectives – which has fostered innovation and creativity across a broad spectrum of categories;
PRODUCTIVITY & UTILITY
Startups with the product or service most likely to go into full commercial production and have the biggest impact on human potential and/or the largest exit.
Startups with the product most likely to catalyze social development through technology.
GAMING & ENTERTAINMENT
Startups with the product or service most likely to see wide consumer adoption and have either the biggest exit and/or impact on gaming and entertainment.
TechCrunch are looking for the best early stage pre-launch startups to launch on their stage in Nairobi this October for a chance to win $25,000 and automatic participation in Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2018. Applications are now open until July 14 at 5pm PST.
