Emerging Sprouts in full bloom

Emerging Media could not be happier after both of it's Emerging Sprout clients, Obami and Cognician, were selected by SeedCamp for possible investment.

The Emerging Sprouts programme is an Emerging Media initiative that identifies cutting edge tech start ups who are doing awesome work that warrant's some equally awesome PR.

Both of our Emerging Sprouts have been invited by SeedCamp, a European micro seed fund that invests in early stage startup companies, to attend the first ever Mini Seedcamp programme to be held on African soil.

Seedcamp, in conjunction with the Tech4Africa conference, recently put out a call for applications for funding and received over 40 entries from technology startups across Africa. The Emerging Sprouts comprise 2 of 11 selected African entrepreneurs who will have a rare opportunity to pitch their businesses at a group of people connected to powerful investors, mentors and startups throughout EMEA.

If successful, one of them could stand in line for an opportunity to attend the Seedcamp Week programme held in London along with a standard investments of \30,000-50,000 and access to next generation developers and entrepreneurs from a network of over 400 top-tier industry mentors.

Following Seedcamp Week, the companies who receive the investment stay in London for three months to grow and develop, building key and lasting business relationships along the way.

We wish them the best of luck and know they are going to rock!
