Yesterday, 16 August was an intense day at the Startup Challenge. A total of 10 tech startups pitched to the panel of judges and 3 were selected to go through to the next round. The startups that made it to the next round are, in no particular order: Software House (an Internet based tech hardware inventory tool), Funza (a recruitment company, looking to use the internet to implement some unique recruitment methods) and Ribe Networks (developing a chat aggregation social and social network & communication platform, Ribe Chat.)
The 3 startups join, Mukela Travel and Sadomba Mahari who qualified some 2 weeks ago at Zimbabwe’s first BarCamp event. The date of the finals is yet to be finalised but will likely be Saturday, 10 September 2011. More information will be posted here once we have a firm date and venue.
For now, it’s congratulations to the 5 teams, and a big thank you to all the startups that entered the challenged.
Below are the photos of the 3 teams that made it yesterday!
