Collaborative network i4DAfrica formed to support entrepreneurs in London
The Africa Technology Business Network’s annual pitch competition Africa Tech Pitch LDN will be featured in London Tech Week 2017, it has been announced.
Now in its third year, Africa Tech Pitch LDN provides an opportunity for Africa-focused tech startups to showcase their solutions to the London tech ecosystem. It spotlights high-impact, high-growth startups that are using technology to unlock untapped opportunities and address a real need in the African market.
In a bid to include startups who are unable to travel to London, this year’s search will be held as a three-minute video pitch competition allowing Africa-based innovators to submit their entries online for the first time.
A panel of industry judges will select five top startups to be highlighted and screened during London Tech Week (12th-16th June) at an exclusive reception hosted by TLA Africa, part of the Tech London Advocates – a coalition of over 4300 tech leaders, experts and investors in London.
The final tech pitch winner will be announced at the Africa Technology Business Forum in London on 21st June 2017 before an audience of innovators and investors from across Europe and Africa.
Startups can apply until 31st May – here
