After the pitches, it was time for the audience to do the heavy lifting and choose a winner. Fortek (VaMudhumeni) won the night! All the startups that pitched received $5,000 in-kind from Amazon Web Services and the winner receives incubation at Impact Hub Harare. The audience stuck around after the event to talk to each other and the pitching start-ups.
