Cameroonian incubator ActivSpaces has announced the 10 startups that will take part at Pitch Day 237 on January 31, pitching for a place in its first accelerator programme – Activation Bootcamp.
Disrupt Africa reported earlier this month ActivSpaces partnered the Cameroon Angels Network (CAN) to hold Pitch Day 237, with startups vying for a place in the #YouCAN competition or Activation Bootcamp.
Activation Bootcamp is a six-month accelerator programme which will offer startups funding, mentorship and support valued at XAF4.6 million (US$8,500).
“Launching a startup is hard, launching one in Cameroon even harder. The goals of the accelerator programme are to help startups make sales, gain traction, and attract investment from external investors,” ActivSpaces said.
The incubator has confirmed the 10 startups as online television discussion portal Djoss.tv, unversity linking tool Kwiizi, laundry platform CleanKakos, joint purchasing service MyCoupon, community accommodation marketplace Flat n’ Flat, Wi-Fi transport entertainment startup Interactive Media Xperience (IMX) Systems, IT web magazine lesGeeks, mobile music streaming service M-Muziik, kids entertainment startup New Era Publishers, and online male fashion store WeMen.
