Pivot East 2013
m:lab East Africa will be holding its third PIVOT East on 25th -‐ 26th June 2013 in Kampala, Uganda. PIVOT East is East Africa’s premier mobile start-‐ups pitching competition and conference held annually since 2011. PIVOT East aims to catalyse the growth of mobile start-‐ups, so as to amplify and consolidate the gains of East Africa’s Mobile developer and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
The key objective for this year's event is “to facilitate the discovery of the next wave of high potential mobile start-‐ups”. The main difference between this year's competition and the previous years’ is its focus on start-‐ups becoming sustainable enterprises as opposed to merely showcasing mobile applications and their mobile developers. PIVOT East 2013 has five competitive categories for Mobile Finance, Mobile Enterprise, Mobile Entertainment, Mobile Society and Mobile Utilities. Each category will feature five finalists who will pitch to Investors, Development Partners, Government Representatives, Telecom Operators and other key industry players from East Africa. Finalists will also be able to secure business incubation for their start-‐ups, virtually or physically at m:lab East Africa.
