When it comes to financial support, startups in the Nigerian city of Lagos are some of the best funded enterprises in the continent. Located in Africa's most populous country, Lagos has started to deliver its own solutions for the citizens of Nigeria and has thus transformed into a real tech hub. By taking one of its pitch events to Lagos, we aim to foster valuable connections between Nigeria and Germany, and support local tech startups.
Working alongside our partner Seedspace we will are targeting startups in West Africa where we were running a challenge that culminated in a pitch event in September. We will also be hosting a quarterly eHealth Meetup.
The selected start-ups were invited for a Pitch Day in Lagos. The best start-up will have the opportunity to collaborate with us globally in our Headquarters.
At our Pitch Event, startups and founders got the chance to showcase their innovative ideas to our judging panel. The winner will be invited to join us at the Innovation Center in Darmstadt, Germany to pitch for a collaboration project.
