Introducing: 54 Days Across Africa virtual Startup Tour

The 54 Days Across Africa virtual startup tour is our maiden campaign which will herald the launch of our digital platform “Kutana Africa”, built with the growth of African startups in mind, hence allowing them to be visible and engage (i.e. connect, interact, collaborate) with one another at the click of a button.

From July 26, 2021, we will be highlighting the startup ecosystem of each country in Africa, beginning with West Africa as the first bloc. You will get to hear first-hand from young and innovative African founders addressing the continent’s challenges through their innovations. The 54 Day Across Africa virtual startup tour will be on a bloc basis in the following order - West Africa bloc, East Africa bloc, Central Africa bloc, Southern Africa bloc, and North Africa bloc.

The tour will present other engaging activities that will benefit participating startups, partners and investors like B2B Networking session, and a Pitch Championship. In addition, all participating startups will get a 20% discount to access our Kutana Africa Platform, which is the largest African B2B online ecosystem.

We, therefore, invite startups especially to take the opportunity to grow through the 54 Days Across Africa virtual startup tour so that together, we can co-create a sustainable startup ecosystem on the continent.
