Selected startups will get 90 second to pitch during the event, which will take place in September at Lagos, Nigeria, a kiosk space in the DEMO pavilion, and extensive promotional support on site.
To be eligible, products must be soon to be ready for launch, and must belong to one of the following categories: Agriculture, Health, Education, Manufacturing, Retail, Media and Entertainment, Communication, Transport and Logistics, Energy, Finance and Banking, Water and Sanitation, Waste Management and Recycling.
