Over the last two weeks UpStart Africa has toured Kisumu and Mombasa looking for creatives, developers and marketers to join the inaugural Kenyan tech based business reality TV show that premiers mid November. Most people think that all talent in the country is based in Nairobi, the auditions have told a different story. The turnout has been
great and the contestants have been nothing but impressive.
Upstart Africa’s vision is to use television to inspire thousands of young people across Africa to take up technology and entrepreneurship as a viable alternative to job seeking. Participants on the show will form teams each made up of three individuals with different skill sets that complement each other.
The teams will then work on ideas that use tech to solve real world problems. Mentors will guide the teams along each step. A panel of VCs will act as the elimination panel. The winning team wins $50,000 investment.
On Saturday (19th) and Sunday (20th) of October 2013 the Nairobi auditions will take place at the
Kenya National Theatre. Interested individuals can sign up for the auditions by going to http://auditions.upstartafrica.tv.
