The Betapitch competition is landing in Cairo this September and eight lucky startups will get to compete and win the best gift of all: the chance to pitch their startup in Berlin!
Entrepreneurs and startup geeks rejoice, the Betapitch competition is coming to Africa this September. The geniuses behind the Berlin Betahaus, a cornerstone in the tech ecosystem in Germany which has welcomed entrepreneurs and creative workers since opening its doors in 2009, will be hosting their competition at the the GrEEK Campus on September 6th with the help of RiseUp!
They're looking for the best and most promising startups in town, and as you know from the Forbes Middle East list, it's not like we have a shortage of them here in good ol' Egypt.
A little background on Betahaus: the hub has become a cornerstone in the Berlin tech ecosystem and the company has expanded into Hamburg, Sofia, and Barcelona to expand its search for ideas and people who think outside the box. They promised to expand beyond Europe and reach out to new regional spaces and startup incubators this year and here they come!
At the competition, eight lucky startups will be selected to pitch in front of an expert jury and win epic prizes but best of all is the chance to battle for gold at the grand competition finale in taking place October 15th in the home of currywust and schnitzel, Berlin.
Applications will be open until September 1st.
