So it’s been a whole year since the first BarCamp and Startup Challenge, an another one is on the cards. This year’s challenge has been announced today on the Jumpstart website. The BarCamp Zimbabwe event is basically meant to get tech entrepreneurs, developers, designers and really anyone passionate about mobile and web tech into one place for a day to network, exchange ideas, demo their startups and the like.
The Startup Challenge on the other hand (called ZOL Jumpstart Chalenge this year) will give mobile & web startups an opportunity to pitch their products to a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs for a mentorship prize, cash prize, and possibly some gadgets this year!
The infographic below, posted along in the Jumpstart announcement summarises succinctly what the event is about, when it’s going to take place, and other details. Here’s the full announcement:
