Exactly two months since we announced the 2014 ZOL Startup Challenge we have already reached the semi-finals which are happening today at Area 46 in Harare.

The past 8 weeks have involved engagement with startups and techpreneurs through skills sessions and a drive to demystify the entire process for this year’s ZOL Startup Challenge.

Throughout the day the twenty three startups that were selected from a pool of applications submitted last month will each make an elevator pitch to a panel of judges and answer questions on their product or service.


The finalist startups will then go through a mentorship period in preparation for the finals set for the 7th and 8th of November 2014. The winners from this year’s ZOL Startup Challenge will receive a cash prize, internet package and business services.

Although this year’s semi-finals are a closed session, Techzim will provide live updates for the event via social media, specifically live-tweets and some video footage on our YouTube channel later in the day.
