So what does it take to succeed with your own start-up in East Africa?
The theme for the Lion’s Den session will be ‘What it takes to be an Entrepreneur’ – each participant will have 1 minute to describe how their business came about and what it does. Then they will have 3 minutes to talk about why the idea works – i.e. the challenges that were faced, and what they think meant it could succeed in East Africa.
There will be three or four participants overall, each with 4 minutes in turn and then there will be 5 minutes for questions from the audience. Erik Hersman from ihub will moderate the whole thing.
The idea behind this session is to really get innovative company’s stories out there. It will bring a great energy to the conference, and hopefully it will inspire the audience of senior representatives from operators, regulators, and global vendors.
The session will take place just before the coffee break, so the audience gets the chance to interact with participants on a 1-2-1 basis as well.
