Pitch Live applications for the 2022 edition are now available for the fourth Africa Startup Summit, which will be held in Nairobi next month.
The Africa Startup Summit is part of the fourth annual Africa Tech Summit, which will take place live and in-person on February 23-24 in Nairobi, Kenya. The two-day event will highlight Africa’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and talent.
Ten startups will be selected to present their products and “ask” on-stage to an audience of more than 500 leaders in the African tech ecosystem, including investors, corporates, accelerators, and media.
“We are delighted to welcome back African startups to Pitch Live on stage at Africa Tech Summit. While the last two years have been very challenging globally, many tech ventures across the continent have flourished. Supporting the ecosystem and creating a platform for these startups to connect with investors and corporates is what the Africa Startup Summit is all about,” said Andrew Fassnidge, founder of Africa Tech Summit.
Selected ventures will also be able to attend the full event, which will include three summits as well as a variety of workshops, discussions, and networking events. Startups must be African (have at least one African co-founder or be headquartered in Africa), be less than five years old, have a minimum viable product (MVP) with traction, have raised less than $1 million in extrernal funding, and have a current “ask.”
Startups must be able to travel to Nairobi for the summit. The deadline for applications is January 31st, and they will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please submit your application here.
