ConnectedHubs Pitch Event for Startups

Is your startup solving a community or global matter such as education, healthcare, agriculture, renewable energy, women entrepreneurship, sharing economy and smart cities?

Are you a Zambian startup:

· Solving a societal problem in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)

· Have at least a working prototype

· Have piloted your business model and can show some traction

· Have a skilled team and the drive to succeed

Southern Africa Innovation Support Programme (SAIS) and BongoHive invite you to apply to Pitch at the ConnectedHubs Pitch Event. This pitch event provides a chance for one Zambian startup to travel to Slush Global Impact Accelerator (GIA). 15 startups will be selected to pitch.

A panel of judges will then select the best 3 startups to stand a chance to go to Slush. Slush is one of the leading tech conferences in Helsinki, Finland. In 2017, Slush gathered over 20,000 attendees including investors, startups and the actors in the global tech industry.

The most potential early-stage startup chosen stands a chance to build their business in Slush Global Impact Accelerator (GIA). The startup will join GIA and the impact-minded entrepreneurs from emerging markets to bring their business to the next level. Online training in September-December gives the startups a boost in, among other areas, business development and pitching. The training culminates in the GIA Bootcamp and Slush in Helsinki from Nov 27-Dec 6, 2018.

Applications to Pitch are open from 16th June - 17th July 2018. Shortlisted participants will be contacted. To apply visit the link below.
