GRAND FINALE: African Start-up Pitch Competition  



This is the third edition of the Kente & Silk's Africa Start-up Pitch Competition. We are thrilled to not only be back but this time return with a innovative approach to our flagship initiative. Influenced by our new COVID-19 climate in Africa, China and beyond we focused on social innovation and social entrepreneurship for the first time. There will be a diverse mix of start-ups pitching in person and online at the heart of Beijing's Silicon Valley and one of the China's highest tech investment hubs - Zhonggauncun.


Africa Week will culminate with a Start-Up Pitch Competition highlighting the social entrepreneurship of Africans here in China. There will be 5 start-ups selected through a rigorous process and judged by a panel of expert judges & successful entrepreneurs. The winner will be rewarded with the Africa Week prize fund, business registration and all finalists will gain valuable access to mentors and a relevant business network.

Come to witness the social innovation in-action and network too.
