Congratulations to the winners and a big shoutout to all top 5!
The anticipation that has been brewing since the announcement of the top 5 finalists for the SVB and StartupOS sponsored pitch event at AfroTech reached its pinnacle last night in Austin in front of a live audience. From a competitive pool of 100 applicants, five exceptional startup founders were given the opportunity to shine. Now, we are ecstatic to introduce the top three startups that captivated the judges and secured their win.
AfroTech has been a beacon of opportunity for rising startups, and this pitch event was a testament to the vitality and ingenuity present in the entrepreneurial landscape. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to our stellar winners, as they embark on a journey of growth and innovation with the support of SVB and StartupOS mentors and a significant boost from their cash prizes.
