Our Chief Technology Officer Thomas Darku was in Johannesburg, South Africa to present Bisa.
The 2017 Demo Africa Technology Startup launch event took place on 23-24 November 2017 in Johannesburg, South-Africa.
“We received a total of 956 applications this year, which is about 20% more than last year,” said Harry Hare, Executive Director and Producer of DEMO Africa.
The applications covered all major verticals – health, agriculture, trade and commerce, manufacturing, hospitality and entertainment, banking and finance. “We are very pleased with the applications received, the diversity and quality are amazing,” Harry continued.
The 35 companies are spread over 10 countries with South Africa and Nigeria leading the pack, where South Africa produced 10, Nigeria 9, Kenya 7, Ghana and Zimbabwe 2 each and 1 from Botswana, Cameroun, Egypt, Senegal and Uganda.
The two Ghanaian Startups that made it were: Bisa & KudiGo Inc.
Bisa App – a mobile application that allows users with an Android, iPhone or Windows phone to directly interact with medical practitioners without being physically present at the hospital.
We are proud of the great work we are doing at Bisa and also our Chief Technology Officer.
