2022 Startup Kai Pitch Competition for Nigerian Ventures

Deadline: November 28, 2021.

The mission of this pitch competition is to identify, spotlight, connect, reward and give support to the featured scalable startups whose business solutions have the potential to reshape Africa.

At Startup Kai, we aim to create a structural platform required to promote the economic development of Nigeria, and Africa at large. We believe the most efficient and effective means of achieving this goal is to identify, train, invest and connect scalable startups whose solutions are potentially iconic in achieving the same goal, giving them the leverage that ensures they ultimately become unicorns that are easily identified globally.

  2. Venture must be based in Nigeria


The top 5 teams will receive a cash prize to help you bring your dreams to life! The best teams will have traction, a focus on helping others and a clear go-to-market strategy.
