Top 5 Pitch Teams Announced

Our #AGEC19_KE Business Pitch Contest [All Contest Info Here] has seen many aspiring high school entrepreneurs across Kenya refine and present their brightest ideas for a chance to be transported to Nairobi to present their business idea at the Awards Evening on the 3rd of August, for a share of Ksh 175 000 in Cash Investment.

It was an especially tough task to whittle the set of excellent submissions down to a top 5, but after hours of review the AGEC Team settled on a group of finalists, guided by which ideas and founders showed the greatest immediate potential for the year ahead.
