As reported earlier this month on the launch of the programme, which Tech Hub Harare said aims to help develop tech-driven startups that solve problems in the communities they serve and beyond.
The virtual programme will help convert ideas into MVPs over a six-month period, taking in ideation, validation, product-market fit and business training. Startups receive cloud computing and business support, and will be allocated a mentor who will provide weekly feedback on their development.
Thirty-two applications were received, and now eight startups have been selected to take part. They include agri-tech startup Umojalands, e-health company Utano Health Services, educational access platform Amigo Solutions, and logistics startup Kutuma.
The list is completed by digital services startup Knight Social, student internships platform InternZim, farm productivity service Wananai, and retail-tech solution Mushambadzi.
