To bid SweepSouth farewell before they head off to San Francisco for the 500 Startups accelerator program, Silicon Cape is hosting a send-off where startups will have the chance to pitch for the chance to win R50 000.

At the event attendees will hear about SweepSouth’s journey, and startups will have the chance to be part of #PitchVinny and present themselves to tech entrepreneur and Silicon Cape founder, Vinny Lingham, who will award the best pitch with the cash prize towards their business.

All you have to do to compete for the prize is buy a general ticket to the send-off for R50 and then fill this form in before the 10th of August. Successful applicants will be notified on the 12th of August.

The SweepSouth send-off and #PitchVinny event happens on the 17th of August from 1pm to 5pm at Workshop 17 at The V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
