Start Up Edge – ”Traction Bus”

Does your business/startup have enough Traction to get you a seat on the TractionBus?

TractionBus is a mobile start-up pitching competition for African businesses/startups. The TractionBus will be visiting 5 hubs in Gauteng to expose entrepreneurs to the startup ecosystem and the different offerings by the different hubs. The hubs will have 5 entrepreneurs allocated to each and only one entrepreneur in each hub gets a seat on the TractionBus. The 5 winners from the 5 hubs will then participate in the finale for potential investment at #THUDfest2015 on the 18 November at 16:00 in front of investors and mentors. The purpose of the TractionBus is to connect, expose and celebrate the startup ecosystem participants as well as exposing entrepreneurs to the different offerings by each ecosystem participant.
StartUp Edge, the competition organisers, have partnered up with 5 hubs to ensure that entrepreneurs from different industries have access to resources, incubation and mentorship provided by these hubs. The five hubs are; The Innovation Hub in Pretoria, Riversands Incubation Hub in Midrand, BizFarm also in Midrand, Alphacode in Sandton and Sophiatown Green incubator.

The winning entrepreneurs will get prizes in excess of R200 000 in terms access to office space, mentorship and support to access markets and funding.
