During the Afrikoin conference in Nairobi, we were lucky to attend the Demo Day of the Savannah Fund, a Kenya-based VC betting on startups all over Africa.

Since a picture is often worth a thousand words, I’ll leave you to browse this Slideshare documenting the exciting ideas presented at Demo Day. Encouragingly, the startups are all focusing on local needs and contexts (remittance from the diaspora, gap of information in the forex market, distribution of aid vouchers, strong need for mobile e-commerce platforms).

I was also struck by the professionalism of the teams and their comprehensive decks, with loads of statistics on their market research and intimate details about their trials, roadmaps and business models.

Enjoy this piece of tech from Africa :)
