This year’s edition of Pitch Storm saw impressive startups from countries across West Africa — including Nigeria, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Sierra Leone — take on the Pitch Storm stage.

Over 200 startups applied to participate but only 12 startups got the chance to take the stage today, 26th of January, 2019. In the end, Estate Intel was adjudged the best startup by an independent panel of judges.

The panel of judges included Tomi Davies of the Lagos Angel Network (LAN), Yele Bademosi, Director of Binance Labs and founder of Microtraction, Damilola Thompson, Senior Corporate Counsel at EchoVC and Maya Horgan, Founder, Ingressive Capital.

Besides Estate Intel, the runner-ups were Foodlocker, an Ibadan-based online grocery delivery startup and Codetrain, a Ghanaian-based code school working to close the developer skills gap in Africa.

Both Estate Intel and Foodlocker got an immediate offer to pitch to LAN’s network of angel investors before the end of January.

Techpoint Build, and Pitch Storm by extension, will return in mid-2019 with the East African edition.
