A Forum committee will screen the applications and finalize 15 startup founders to present their pitches in front of an audience consisting successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, business incubators / accelerators, and executives across Nigeria. Selected entrepreneurs / founders will have an opportunity to have a call with one of our mentors / advisors to review their pitches to be used in the competition presentation. A panel of judges will evaluate the pitches and choose top three Startups for awards presentation.
Startups and entrepreneurs submitting the applications must be available within Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria, to present their startup ideas, if their startups are selected as finalists.
Please note that there are no assurances of any sort – such as investment, connections to mentors / potential investors, acceptance of follow-up meetings, etc. It is up to the founders to network with the audience and guests for any partnership, mentorship, or future follow-up.
