PitchDrive – Presenting the 14 top Start-ups from Africa
08/25/2017 @ 16:00 - 19:00| Free
You are cordially invited to an Open PitchDrive session.
PitchDrive by CcHUB, powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, will engage 14 of Africa’s top tech start-ups on a tour of tech hubs in Europe (London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich and Paris) to pitch to investors, explore international opportunities and learn about frontier technology markets.
Last year, it was estimated that African start-ups raised a record-breaking total of $366.8 million in investment, with the top 10 destinations being Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda, Cote d’Ivoire, Tanzania, Egypt, Ghana, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia and Uganda. Africa is at the start of a technological renaissance and we present to you a unique opportunity to interact and network with 14 leading startups from the continent.
The Open Pitch session will give the entrepreneurs the unique opportunity to interact, network and pitch to a room full of high networked individuals and Africans in Diaspora. We hope you will take out time to join this rare opportunity to get a glimpse of the best of Africa’s tech startups.
After a introduction and a short pitch by each start-up there will be opportunity to network and meet the community.

Location: Friedrichstraße 246, 10969 Berlin
