The second edition of Africa Tech Pitch LDN is set to take place tomorrow in London, UK, with five Africa-oriented startups to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.

The Africa Tech Pitch LDN event is a pitching evening aimed at showcasing high-potential, high-impact startups addressing a real need in the African market.

Five selected startups will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, in order to get feedback and build connections to help them move their solutions forward.

The startups selected to pitch tomorrow are IZI-Fin, a mobile banking solution that offers transparent and accessible financial services to Africa’s unbanked; – a platform for skilled tradesmen and women in Nigeria by connecting them to customers and clients; VisioRecruit, a video-enabled recruitment platform that enables recruiters in Africa to remotely interview and assess applicants, allowing them to more cost-effectively access skilled talent in the diaspora; movie streaming app with a social twist OKIKI App; and e-book publishing company Bahati Books, aiming to bring African literature to a global audience.

The judging panel will be made up of Meredith Ettridge, international policy advisor at The Royal Academy of Engineering; Nzube Ufodike, director at AMOO Capital Advisory; Christopher Baker-Brian, co-founder and chief technical officer (CTO) at BBOXX; and Leslie Onyesoh co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) at Kwanji.
