Tech crunch in its communication stated that the competition will be held in 3 cities of Sao Paulo, Beirut, and Lagos as they added that 15 companies will be selected in each region to compete.
The finalists will also receive intensive coaching from TechCrunch’s editors to hone their pitches to a razor’s edge before they take the stage in front of top venture capitalists from the region and around the world
Last year, the overall winner walked away with $25,000 and the story wil be no different this year as Tech crunch promised the same amount for the top startup plus a trip for two to the Crunch disrupt event in USA.
