Yesterday, we spent the day at BarCamp Zimbabwe. It was a busy day of which we had a total blast! The Startup Challenge went well too, 16 startups pitched in front of the whole audience, of these 7 went through to the second round.
Out of the 7, two emerged as the finalists out of an initial plan to have 5. A followup pitching event will be conducted at the Miekles in which new startups are open to pitch and fill in the remaining 3 spots in the buildup to the finals on a date to be announced.
A big thank you to all the people that made the event happen; the startups, sponsors, participants, presenters, organisers, everybody that put their hand to make it happen. Thank you all.
Here are a couple of photos from the event. We’ll post more on Facebook and Flicker once we get some good internet.
