COMPETITION: Innotribe Startup Challenge 2017

Launched in 2011, Innotribe’s Startup Challenge has become one of the leading global startup competitions, connecting the financial services industry with more than 650 FinTech startups around the world and reaching over 4,000 audience members through global showcases and networking events.

In 2016, the Startup Challenge moved from a global competition to a local programme supporting the emerging FinTech ecosystems, where demographic trends, economic growth and regional integration projects are creating fertile ground for new technologies to emerge.

One of the key strengths of the Startup Challenge programme is the coaching and mentoring, helping startups to articulate their business value and elevator pitch in order to facilitate access to banks and financial institutions.

For the third consecutive year, the Startup Challenge is coming to Africa and applications are now open to all African startups. What are the benefits?

  • Receive coaching and mentoring from renowned experts from the global FinTech scene.
  • The 10 startups who will be selected to perform at the showcase in Abidjan on 17 May (as part of SWIFT’s African Regional Conference) will get access to over 500 leading financial services executives from over 45 countries across Africa, including financial institutions, market infrastructures, international corporations and technology partners. Their travel and expenses will be covered up to 2,500 EUR.
  • The 3 startups selected by ARC delegates after the showcase will receive a 10,000 EUR cash prize and tickets to attend Sibos in Toronto (from 16-19 October 2017).

    Dov Girnum, CEO Merchant Capital

  • Starting a business is a daunting prospect, especially one that has a focus on an unproven and experimental technology. I have benefitted enormously from the support and wisdom I have received from AlphaCode during my time as a member.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

  • Being located in the heart of Africa's biggest financial services hub, we have gained a lot of credibility through AlphaCode. Our customers trust our brand by association, which results in increased sales of cows.

    Ntuthuko Shezi, CEO Livestock Wealth

  • AlphaCode is without a doubt the premium fintech and startup community in South Africa providing many learning, growth and network opportunities and an environment which adds concrete value to us

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

  • Slide is now well on the way to causing significant disruption in the South African fintech sector. We would not have been able to break into the South African market so rapidly without the help provided by AlphaCode.

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in providing a platform for us to access industry thought leaders, networks, working space, coaching and ultimately the opportunity to pitch to global multi-nationals and secure funding that very few startups get to land in their first year.

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in the growth of our business. Through the club, we have met many like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses with whom we have formed strategic partnerships. The team is incredibly generous with their time and continue to give us invaluable mentorship and support.

    Annabel Dallamore, CEO StriderTech
