The desire of TechCrunch for quite a while is to bring its business to Africa, thanks to Facebook as they sponsor TechCrunch to make this a reality. TechCrunch will be bringing its first startup competition to Sub-Saharan Africa – precisely Nairobi on 11th of October 2017.

TechCrunch Battlefield Africa 2017 is aiming for participants who are best innovators in Sub-Saharan Africa, makers and technical entrepreneurs .

A cash prize of $25,000 USD in no-equity cash plus an all-expense paid trip for two to San Francisco to compete in the Battlefield at TechCrunch’s flagship event, Disrupt SF 2018 will be given to the founders of the overall winner, “Sub-Saharan Africa’s Most Promising Startup."
