Stimulating the innovation ecosystem in the Pwani Region

Swahilipot Hub in partnership with 1000 Alternatives is happy to announce a call for startups and early-stage companies to apply to the PIW Pitch – Pwani Innovation Weeks’ Startup competition. PIW Pitch highlights the regions’ most innovative young companies who are competing for a prize, investment funding and incubation with Swahilipot Hub.

In return for equity, 1000 Alternatives will provide PIW Pitch winners access to its global advisors, a 4-month incubation programme with the support of EarlyBird and Swahilipot Hub, monetary investment and a host of other in-kind investments towards taking the social enterprise to profit and scale.
