Showcasing Brilliant African Innovations Against Covid-19

May 27, 2020

A “shark tank” Style Pitch Competition to showcase and support African entrepreneurs who have developed solutions to support Africa’s fight against the coronavirus.  Entries are evaluated primarily on their impact against the virus and the viability of delivering the product or service. Financial sustainability is of secondary importance. Entrepreneurs will “pitch” their ideas, and will be questioned by a judging panel comprised of a seasoned group of innovation investment experts.
