Most startups often begin with an idea, but ideas are a dime a dozen, and not all ideas make for great startups.

So what truly makes a startup idea exceptional? Why do some ideas succeed where others fail?

These are some questions at the heart of our upcoming panel session, where we delve into "The anatomy of a great startup idea."

Happening on the sidelines of Techpoint Pitch Friday, this panel promises to provide clarity on where great ideas originate, how they evolve, and why some ideas fail.

Our speakers, Nneka Eze and Babatunde Akin-Moses, have either invested in or started successful businesses and will share their first-hand experiences, offering invaluable perspectives on identifying market gaps, navigating industry trends, and harnessing creativity to conceptualize disruptive solutions.

Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur, a budding entrepreneur, or simply intrigued by the factors that drive startup success, this session is tailored to inspire and educate.
