IT News Nigeria:

Two Nigerian tech start-ups have qualified for the final of the Supernova Challenge Pitch Competition at the ongoing GITEX 2022.

It was reported on Monday that the two Nigerian start-ups that emerged as finalists were among the nine that first made it to the semi-final level.

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami), also, while inaugurating the exhibition pavilion of Nigeria at the Dubai World Trade Centre, confirmed that nine Nigerian tech innovators and start-ups booked their spots in the semi-final of the GITEX tech-invention competition.

He said: “I am confident that the four Nigerian start-ups and innovators will surely give their foreign counterparts a run for their money. And will cart away the prizes at stake, during the grand finale of the exhibition”.

The Nigerian start-ups to compete for the gold position of the Supernova Challenge Pitch Competition are FLOEWS and ShapShap.

Another start-up from Kenya, Melanin Kapital, is the other African representative in the final of the ‘Mobility and Smart Cities Innovator’ category, that the Nigerian tech firms qualified for.

FLOEWS is a multi-award winning startup seeking to solve the persistent problem of climate change and natural disasters like flooding, by providing an equitable access to a democratized, socially-inclusive and gender-responsive disaster risk management together with early warning for vulnerable individuals, business communities and national economies.
