The City of Johannesburg in partnership with Wits University, earlier this year launched an initiative to give Johannesburg based innovators who want to make a change in their community, an opportunity to turn their ideas into a startup through the#Hack.Jozi Challenge.
The challenge was for entrepreneurs to come up with digital solutions to solve the every day challenges faced by their communities. Described as a boot camp for startup entrepreneurs, the challenge was open to either individuals or teams with the relevant technical capabilities with an innovative idea using the power of digital technology.
The overall winner will walk away with R1 million, with the first and second runner ups taking home R350 000 cash prizes each. The winners will also receive one year free hosting credit for their business applications from IBM.
