About this event

Join us for an exhilarating event this year, where 10 teams comprised of talented developers, designers, and business-minded students will engage in an intense 3-hour battle to tackle local and community issues head-on.

These teams will be presented with a selection of 5 challenging questions, from which they will choose one to address. Within the span of 3 hours, they will craft a solution to the chosen problem, develop a compelling pitch deck, and produce a comprehensive business analysis document. The climax of their efforts will be a 5-minute presentation in front of our esteemed judges, followed by a 5-minute question and answer session.

The stakes are high as the teams' business development documents will be evaluated by our panel of judges, and the final scores will determine the winners of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. But that's not all – there's also a special prize for the most outstanding female participant, valued at 100,000 XAF, generously sponsored Swychr.

UNDP sponsors the prices as follows

- First prize of 1,000,000 XAF,

- Second prize of 600,000 XAF

- Third prize of 400,000 XAF.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Silicon Mountain community members and startups, including Eng Banki Louise, Rebase Academy, Eng Akah Harvey, and Eng Tanko Edward.
