The Ampion Venture Bus is back in 2015! After kicking this year off with two successful tours in Morocco and West Africa in September, AMPION will soon be headed your way as the Venture Bus is approaching East Africa. We’ll have the privilege of welcoming 40 outstanding, rising entrepreneurs from all over the continent, who will be building a venture in seven days on the bus. This year we’ll travel through Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, finally finishing in Rwanda where we visit the Transform Africa Summit 2015 in Kigali. The AMPION Venture Bus East Africa was made possible by the support of Merck, Microsoft and GIZ on behalf of BMZ.
On Sunday, October 18th, on day 6 of the Venture Bus tour, we arrive at our final destination in Kigali. On this day we throw our Ampioneers to the lions one day before the final event at the Transform Africa Summit. These lions, really our international expert mentor team, will scrutinize our teams for the last time during their presentations at the Final Pitch Event.The temperature is rising and our lions will show no mercy. All to help our teams prepare for the final event!
The event starts at 18:00 and will take place at kLab. We would like to invite you to join us when the Ampioneers present their business models. You are also invited to the official AMPION After-Pitch Party at The Office in Kigali. The party starts around 21:00. We hope that you will honor us with your presence on this special occasion.
