As part of a demonstrated effort by the Ondo State Government, private sector and the academia to drive the creation of social innovations to the myriad of challenges in the country, the Akure Tech Hub has announced a pitch competition for startups in the state to compete for a prize money of over $6,000.
Interested individuals/Startups within Ondo State are invited to apply for the pitch; highlighting idea, team, current status, product-market fit, business model, market potential, competition, traction etc.
Only early stage Startups are eligible to apply to the Akure Tech Hub Pitch Competition.
