AGCNigeria has emerged as the winner of the Entrepreneur’s Hub pitching event, out of the 5 startups chosen from 80 applicants that pitched at the event.
The event was held at NigeriaCom in Lagos and AGCNigeria won with its GenRX product, an inventory management system, programmed to alert Pharmacy stores whenever a drug is about to expire.
This qualifies AGCNigeria for the regional challenge, coming up in November at AfriCom in Cape Town, where it will be joined by other regional winners.
The partners of the event, Informa,Nigeria’s Wennovation Hub and Disrupt Africa said, “The quality of applications received is an indication of the creativity and innovation embedded in African startups. Every entry is plausible but there is a limit to the number we can accommodate at the maiden edition. We strongly hope the next edition will accommodate more entrants so that all those great ideas that do not make this year’s edition can sprout up to the stage.”
