The Startup Battlefield Africa Competition is an event organized by TechCrunch, a US-based company that seeks to identify and support startups focused on technology and innovation that helps to optimize supply chains, increased access to education, strengthening farmer’s revenues and so much more.
The first competition for Sub-Saharan Africa was held in Nairobi, Kenya in 2017 but this year’s event is scheduled to hold in Lagos, Nigeria on December 11th.
Pre-registered and pre-screened startups will have the privilege to pitch their ideas to a live audience and a panel of judges for an opportunity to become “Sub-Saharan Africa’s Most Promising Startup.” The winner will go home with $25,000 USD in no-equity cash plus a trip for two to compete in Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch’s flagship event, Disrupt in 2019
Although applications are now closed, startups and business owners are welcome to attend as guests. This will provide a great learning and networking experience for all attendees. If you are interested in attending, you can get your tickets here.
