In June 2023, DIGILOGIC invited the supported African smart logistics innovators in Cape Town to participate in the DIGILOGIC Demo Day co-located with the AU-EU Innovation Festival 2023, organised by the European Commission.
The nine representatives present were Lenganji Singoyi from Yaaka Investment, Gerald Reuben from Wadonge, Brenda Mideva from Mwinge, Dorcas Wamalwa from Auto-Truck, Kingsley Samuel from Deftpal, Isaac Wachira from Raadava, Mwanso Chalo from Duniya, Michael Addae from Vinmak, and Eric Karugu from Instadriver. They were invited to participate in a workshop offered by DIGILOGIC facilitated by Adriano Mauro, managing director of Prototipi Nigeria, who leads the DIGILOGIC Dissemination and Communication activities. Also present at the workshop and on the panel were representatives Ryan Ford from VTT, Merchalene Smith and Rina Wood from Prototipi.
On the first day, a 4-hour workshop, "The Art of Pitching", was designed to help entrepreneurs create powerful pitches for investment opportunities. The session focused on guiding and facilitating entrepreneurs in delivering their most effective pitches for their businesses and products. The workshop also included discussions around opportunities, challenges, how collaboration can support innovators and how DIGILOGIC already supported these innovators.
The workshop concluded with each innovator recording their pitch. Watch the innovators' pitches playlist on the DIGILOGIC YouTube channel.
