These finalists were selected from a pool of applicants of close to 40 submissions. The call for entries lasted from August 2nd to September 9th. An initial shortlist was then created before another round of screening saw eight (four in Malabo and four in Bata) entrepreneurs emerge the finalists who will now have a chance of making a case for their business ideas and startups to a jury made up of professionals from the private and public sectors with expertise in various sectors from technology, economy, law, financing and administration. A date for the Bata finalists will be announced in due course.
The four finalists set to contest in Malabo are, Manuel Sese Nchama, Marta Dalila Apedo Pasialo, Pedro Sotero and Prospero Miguel, and they have already been given all access to the international entrepreneurship platform, Vavil Institute, where they can further improve their pitching skills, join a global community of entrepreneurs and founders, and get funding opportunities.
