    The engaging event was hosted by the Founder of Equity Match, Massimiliano Sulpizi (Max) with eight startup founders pitching their new projects to a distinguished panel and audience.

    The first investor on the panel was Stephanie Tumba, a London-based international entrepreneur, author, co-founder of a London dating agency, and founder of Ste Tumba Capital. Her fund helps builds brands since 2016 through angels (focusing on seed and early-stage investments) and more recent acquisitions. Since January 2020, Sté Tumba is embedding ESG in all its investments giving them a unique opportunity to invest in and be at the forefront of all the dramatic changes the world is going through today.

    The second panelist was the Investment Director of Singeria Capital Yulia Oshinchuk, who is experienced in private equity deals, startup development, and also change management. She is also good at growing businesses through digital transformation by making them more flexible and more efficient.

    Gabriel Tocha, a Venture Capital Analyst at Big Start Ventures was the third panelist. He is from a B2-B focused venture capital firm that invests solely in the intersection between the financial sector and technology.

    The eight founders and start-ups that presents at the event namely were;
    1. Nishat Hashem of Apojo Technologies
    2. Angela and Luca of B-datagray
    3. Dave Rouse of Carbonclick
    4. Saviour Anslem of eDucura
    5. Tamar Buadze of ebazaar farmers
    6. Christophe Legrand of Local Ocean Tech
    7. Andrea Silva of Moppy
    8. Amos Mushumbusi of Twenzao

    Speaking at the event Nishat Hashem said his start-up plans to break down barriers in the creative industry and democratize it through creative ecosystem geo technologies. “We are the creative connector of a virtual platform that delivers our next-generation networking collaboration and digital marketplace for creatives in doing so. We are also tackling the UN sustainable development goals of inclusion via our ecosystem in an industry that has been fragmented with many entry barriers.”

    Up next to address the audience were co-founders of B-datagray, Angela and Luca from a blockchain startup based in Dublin, Ireland. They were seeking funding for their DataGen project. “It's a new blockchain infrastructure for the centralized GPN CPO cloud computing.” They believe that the NOLA storage, and the cloud computing market will be really booming in the next few years….

    Start-up number three was New Zealand-based Dave Rouse of carbonclick, a carbon offsetting platform. “At the point of sale on the cart, we connect, people wanting to offset the emissions of their purchase with projects, which genuinely change the future of our planet.” He says that sustainability and innovation are part of their DNA and that they are a FinTech company that's dedicated to climate change.

    Moving on to Nigeria next was Saviour Anslem of eDucura, an E management tool that helps schools all across Africa to manage all their operations from one place. “We found out that over one 20,000 elementary schools in Nigeria with over 30,000 secondary schools and hundreds of thousands of other educational Institutes and that these schools still have a repetitive daily operation that's non-automated.” So he says that with their app schools can manage all their operations from one place with their software. “So here is the solution program.”

    Tamar Buadze of ebazaar farmers presenting his startup says his platform aims at meeting the customer's needs and solving the farmer's problems. “We created the first online platform in Georgia, and it is changing the way how farmers are presenting and selling their products is the scalable mark marketplace that connects farmers directly to their customers in metropolitan areas.”

    France’s Christophe Legrand of Local Ocean Tech, an environment-friendly indoor farming technology firm was the next startup on the agenda, and presenting to the audience he said, “Our tech grows shrimps, bringing it in a sustainable way closer to the consumer. Our system grows 170 kilos of shrimp per month per system. It's standalone and it's scalable because the product can be shipped very easily. It fits in a 40-foot container and can be deployed rapidly anywhere. Our shrimp grows in a hundred-day cycle compared to five to six months outdoor.” This makes sense to be in line with UN SDG and farm-to-four initiatives in Europe and basically, this is what we've been working on for the past five years, he added.

    “If you believe that scale is an important driver of business sustainability, here we are,” said the next presenter, Andrea Silva of Moppy, a new disrupter in the cleaning industry while presenting his start-up. “So if you ever try to recruit a cleaner, you probably know the frustration. So we interviewed, and provide many different people, business owners, and residential customers, and each one of them complains about how difficult to get the right cleaner for the right job at the right time.”

    The last presenter of the day Amos Mushumbusi of Twenzao, is the founder of a startup that's building, Africa's leading carpooling platform. It’s a platform where private car owners offer empty seats in their cars and passengers traveling in the same direction.

    The global ride-sharing market is valued at over a hundred billion in Africa. The market is at seven billion. Twenzao aims to capture four billion out of this.
