Tickets are now available for the PIVOT East 2019 startups and SMEs pitching conference at $50 per delegate. There are only 20 Tickets remaining and available for sale. They can be purchased HERE.
25 East African startups will pitch at the conference which will be held on 27th June at the iHub on the 6th Floor of Senteu Plaza on Galana Road. This year’s conference will be an exclusive and smaller event to enrich networking and interaction by the attendees. Invitees include Startups founders, investors, industry players, government representatives and development partners.
Each of the 25 startups will have 5 minutes to pitch on stage and another 5 minutes to field questions from a panel of judges. The pitching sessions will be sequenced according to the five competition categories. Pitching will be punctuated by short fireside chat panels discussing some of the hot issues in the East African startup scene. Panelists at the fireside chats have been chosen to maximize depth of insights contributed and opinion diversity.
The conference program is designed to facilitate maximum interaction and networking between startup founders, investors and other industry players. It includes networking breaks where delegates will interact with startups and their products. Delegates will also get a chance to get updates on new trends in the Tech and startup scene by the presentations from the PIVOT East Alumni during their short presentations as they highlight several topical issues in the East African startup and tech ecosystem. The 2019 version of the PIVOT East conference will be the sixth edition as its inception in 2011. The ruthless timekeeping and high energy tradition of PIVOT will be maintained, among other aspects that make it a unique conference for key actors in the startup scene.
Tickets to the conference costing $50 and are available online. Payments can be made using mobile money in Kenya as well as credit and debit cards in local currency or US dollars.
