it takes to win?

Pitch your idea in front of 30+ VCs

17 JANUARY 2023

NAIROBI, KENYA

SiGMA is throwing its weight behind up-and-coming startups, offering support to young businesses by connecting them to investors and mentors.

 

Following a very successful run, the next edition of SiGMA Pitch is back for another round. Over 100 startups will be selected to showcase their products and initiatives throughout the event. Each startup will have a small booth at SiGMA surrounded by top investors and mentors.

However, only the judges’ top ten will make it to the Pitch during the final leg of the summit, putting them in the running to potentially receive valuable equity investment. The investment prize pool will be awarded based on the startup deck, and at the discretion of the organisers, with prizes ranging in value of up to, but not exceeding 500,000 in equity investment.  Increase your chance of being one of the top 100 by providing a 3-minute video-introduction upon participation!

Huch

Huch

We are more than a solution to be implemented by merchant, we are a user centric solution. We believe that to succeed an APM must be adopted by the users. For this purpose we try to engage with the user through a payment app in which we will add value added features for the user (cashback, BNPL etc...). The idea is that if we want to allow the merchant to save on acquisition costs when he integrates an APM, we must put the user in a position where he wants to use the APM instead of the classic solution.

LAMBDA Gamehub

LAMBDA Gamehub

There is no platform for iGame (gambling) developers to publish their games freely, like Play Store or Steam. We are creating one.
In the current business model, game developers offer their products to online casinos. Operators handle payments, and marketing, guarantee that winnings will be paid out, and handle compliance issues with local authorities
From the users' point of view - the current model does not provide transparency and fairness regarding return to player (RTP) and conflict resolution. Some effort has been made in this direction, but not nearly enough.
