TechCrunch is bringing Startup Battlefield to Africa. Through Startup Battlefield Africa, TechCrunch will select 15-20 early-stage startups from across the continent that they think are poised to make an impact in the African market and beyond.
The startups are given an opportunity to pitch on stage to top investors for a chance to win a cash prize of $25,000, completely equity free, plus an all expense paid trip to San Francisco to participate in Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference. And because it’s TechCrunch, each company’s pitch will be watched online by their global audience of investors, potential customers, and other global media outlets.
To participate, startups must fit into one of three categories – social good, productivity and utility, gaming and entertainment. Five startups in each category will be selected to go on stage for the Battlefield Africa in Nairobi.
Finalists will be chosen by TechCrunch’s editors who run the TechCrunch Startup Battlefield competition and finalists who make it will be contacted by 21st August. Deadline for application is 14th July
