A Chance To Win USD25,000 in Prizes for Technology Startups

BarCamp Zimbabwe, an event for tech startups, geeks, entrepreneurs and generally the whole tech community in Zimbabwe is set to take place at the Maiden Public House on 3 August 2011 from 9am to 10pm.

Techzim has started this initiative alongside Joseph Manzungu, an open source enthusiast, and Richwell Phinias, the man driving Dariro.com.

Says Techzim:

One of the exciting things that’s going to take place at BarCamp Zim is the Startup Challenge. This is a positive for startups and Zim’s whole mobile and web startup ecosystem. Startups will be able to get feedback and ideas from fellow attendees and most of all, some exposure to their projects, which hopefully will attract skills, partnerships, and ultimately some funding.

But that’s not all; courtesy of the BarCamp Zim platinum sponsor, Zimbabwe Online (ZOL), startups will also have the opportunity to win some US $25,000 in cash and internet services in the Startup Challenge.

The event is the first of its kind in Zimbabwe and it is geared towards a robust exchange of ideas for those present. Much time will be spent discussing ideas on technological solutions that are Zimbabwe-centric and the culmination of this will be the Startup Challenge where the next big thing, tech-wise might just be born.
