About SingularityU East Africa GIC Pitch Day

Join us for our inaugural SingularityU East Africa Global Impact Challenge pitch event, where finalists will present their ideas in front of a panel of judges from Singularity University, East Africa Community, ICT Kenya and other senior representatives of the entrepreneurship, or innovation community in East Africa.

Pitches will be judged on the use of exponential technology, the idea’s feasibility, viability, and coherence, its impact and scalability, as well as the relevance of the solution to the theme of the challenge. At the end of the evening, judges will choose a winner, who will be awarded a full sponsorship to Singularity University prestigious 9-week Global Solutions Program this summer.
