Stating further the CEO said the concept is bi-annual and it is motivating, educating and at the same time entertaining. “This is a unique concept and it is a bi-annual program that is both motivating, educating and also entertaining.
“The whole idea is to kick start the Africa’s Startups and also accelerate the continent’s ecosystem. Every season admits 25 cohorts into the Bootcamp and we’re rooting through various incubation/accelerator hubs all over Africa to get the best 25 that could stand up globally,” he explained.
