Collaborations means that we are want the same thing, which is economic growth and sustainability through creating employment and building more successful startups.

The entrepreneurs will also be pitching their fintech startups on the day of the graduation ceremony, they will be now putting what they have learnt for 21 days into tangible fintech solutions. The pitching is powered by the eagle’s ring and there will be judges that will judging their pitch decks and give them feedback on what to improve to develop iconic fintech startups.
