Applications For DEMO Africa 2015 Competition Extended

by | May 27, 2015

Back in March, we informed you of how DEMO Africa 2015 was accepting applications from startups all across Africa.The application window, which was scheduled to close by the end of May, has now been extended till the 30th of  June, 2015.

The extension is as a result of the upcoming Regional DEMO Africa mini-events, which will “bring together regional technology eco-systems to learn and share from peers and industry players. Especially encouraging innovations in less favoured categories where interventions are critically needed in various countries across Africa”. With the lessons learnt, it is hoped that the local entrepreneurs will be able to refine their profiles ahead of the final shortlist.

The DEMO Africa mini-events will be hosted in four cities across Africa. These include Nairobi, Accra, Harare and Cairo. The first of these mini-events is scheduled in Nairobi on June 3rd where East African technology entrepreneurs will interact with key industry players and their more successful peers. In the weeks after we will visit Accra (June 10), Cairo (June 17) and Harare (June 24).

The main DEMO Africa event will take place in Lagos on September 24th and 25th. Interested startups can apply now to take part in the pitch competition. If you would like to witness the event first hand, you can book a reservation over at Eventbrite.
