13 brilliant presentations made it through in the evaluation of startup ideas.
Interestingly the chief-guest of the day took a special interest in one of the presentations since it was more or less in line with what his company does back in Nairobi.Later on, while giving his recommendations, he promised to work together with the start up owners by helping them realize their dream and even foresaw a partnership deal.
The event culminated with final words from both team ANDELA representatives as well as the hub’s manager.
