Three African startups win $75,000 each at MEST Africa Challenge

Ghana’s Oze, Kenya’s WayaWaya and South Africa’s Snode Technologies have each won $50, 000 in equity investments at the MEST Africa Challenge competition in Nairobi, Kenya.

According to MEST Africa, which runs a pan-African entrepreneurial training programme, seed fund, and incubator, the judges were unable to agree which startup had the potential to make the biggest impact on the continent and beyond, so they named the three African startups all winners of $50,000 investment each.

The three startups will also receive $25, 000 each in credit from Microsoft, according to the pan-African incubator.
