Ugandan fintech startups are invited to apply to pitch at the Wolves’ Den at Finnovation Africa, with the panel of judges to provide feedback on how to improve their products and business models.
The Finnovation Africa event – to be held in Kampala on April 7 – aims to shake up the traditional conferencing format, and provide a transformative and innovative event around the role and impact of fintech in Africa.
The conference features the “Wolves’ Den”, a dynamic session at which selected startups are given the opportunity to test the impact of their solutions against a panel of fintech experts, and build the panel’s feedback into the further development of their business model.
Startups will be asked to give their 10 minute elevator pitch at the event, followed by questioning from the “wolves”, who will also give their feedback on the solutions presented.
The four wolves on the panel will be Evans Munyuki, chief digital and information officer (CDIO) at MyBucks; Dan Marom, chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder at Irrational Innovations; Aaron Fu, managing partner for Africa at NEST.vc; and Nyasinga Onyancha, CEO and co-founder at SimbaPay.
Selected startups will have the conference delegate fee waived. Applications can be sent here.
