Prior to the Grand Finale, more than 3000 nominees went through public voting and adjudication in their home countries to win the national round. The winners from here were then further judged and ranked by an esteemed panel of international judges, whose decision was eventually combined with individual public votes from across the globe to win at the regional Grand Finale of the 2018 Southern Africa Startup Awards. The event, which was hosted at the illustrious Steyn City development in the North of Johannesburg, in collaboration with LIMIT BREAKERS GLOBAL FOUNDATION, brought together some of the most sought after startups, startup supporters and investors in the region in conversation and celebration.
We were ecstatic that the “People’s Choice” award winner named on the night was our very own Lynette Hundermark of South Africa.
Winners were also offered web services which includes Website design, hosting and managed services for 12 months to the value of R150 000 by Kaskade.Cloud
The COO of Southern Africa Startup Awards, Flo Mosoane, added that “our aim is to create a platform and channel for effective relationship building in the startup ecosystem. We hope to have achieved that with this event”. “I attended lots of awards ceremonies and this was authentic and memorable in so many ways” Said Lynette Hundermark, the winner of the People’s Choice Award when asked about her experience.
