Win N500k & an all-expense paid trip to San Francisco in the Marvel Web Tech showdown

Marvel Web is hosting Tech Showdown with editor Jon Shieber in Lagos during the last week of July 2015 and we’re looking for a few good startups to pitch at the event.

The goal is to bring the startup community together, get to know the amazing tech entrepreneurs in Nigeria, and get the word out about cool local startups to the international tech community. We’re hosting a Pitch-Off, where pre-selected companies will have exactly 120 seconds to pitch their product on stage to a panel of judges, including Jonathan Shieber Senior Editor at Techcrunch,  Bastian Gotter of iROKOtv, Chika Nwobi of mTech, Toye Akindele of Synergy Capital, Funke Opeke of MainOne, Bola Akindele of Courteville and Tokunbo Ogun of Marvel Web. In the end, only 3 startups will be victorious.
