Each team was given a 3 minute presentation, followed a 5 minute Q/A. This was followed by a series of five 20 minute hands-on sessions with mentors. The day was designed to be informal and provide constructive feedback on companies and pitch.

Before the presentation, there was a brief insight from Philip Kiracofe, the Operations Manager of  Startupbootcamp Cape Town that:

  • 90% of growth on the planet earth will be form West Africa.
  • The population of West Africa will grow 3-4 times therefore all facilities have to be scaled in order to meet the demands.
  • However 3-4 times more cash likely impossible.
  • Everything has to be fundamentally replaced.
  • Startups cannot scale unless there is open innovation ecosystem with corporate, startups, Investors, Talent and Institutions.
