While you were away the prize money for the winner of the upcoming TechCabal Battlefield Startup Competition got a push from the earlier $20,000 to $20,000, so this means you’ll have to work even more to win!
Bankole Oluwafemi, Editor at TechCabal, told us that this is by far and away the biggest startup prize up for grabs in Nigeria.
iROKING has added fuel to the TechCabal Battlefield grand prize by adding $10,000 to the then $10,000 for the winner. The initial $10,000 for the grand prize and $2,000 for the runner up had been given by Stanbic IBTC. This adds the total sum of the prize money to $22,000 and several other gifts to the a few participants.
