Earlier this year, Techpoint hosted the maiden edition of Techpoint Build; an annual event aimed primarily at facilitating more local investments in home-grown startups and the local business ecosystem.
One of the highlight of the event was Pitch Storm, where nine of the finest startups from Nigeria competed for the opportunity to pitch to investors.
In the end, Placements.ng emerged the top startup, walking away with the grand prize of ₦1 million.
In the next edition of Techpoint Build is going to West Africa, meaning startups from all West African Countries are invited to participate, and the Pitch Storm grand prize money will be $10,000.
Participating startups will be eliminated down to 12 finalists. While there will be only one winner, other finalists also get to pitch to a room full of potential local investors and foreign investors in a closed Deal Room.
