Calling All African Start-Ups!

Keen to meet with mobile operators to scale your business?

We’re providing the perfect platform this year at Mobile 360 – Africa with a special programme designed to bring together the mobile industry and entrepreneurs across Sub-Saharan Africa!

For the first time, the GSMA is putting on Jump Start @ Mobile 360 – Africa on the 9th October in Cape Town this year.

This exciting new event feature is comprised of three parts:

Keynote Stage – Power to Innovate: Growing Start-Up Ecosystems & Cultivating Entrepreneurship

Taking place on the morning of Day 1, this 90 minute keynote session will showcase start-up best practice & lessons learnt, operator experiences and investor insights.

Start-Up Pitch Platform + Operator Question Time

In the afternoon from 4pm – 5:30pm we will feature the Pitch Platform where a line-up of 6-8 exciting early stage entrepreneurs will each give a brief 5 minute pitch to a panel of operators and the audience. Each entrepreneur will then take 5 minutes worth of questions from a panel of operators and vice versa.

The pitch platform is not an opportunity to pitch for funding, but rather a unique opportunity for start-ups to pitch for potential business and possible partnerships with mobile operators. This is an opportunity for start-ups looking to expand and scale their business with MNO partners.

Networking Drinks

The pitch session will be followed by an informal networking reception for participants and the audience.
