Today is the day we’ve been talking about since September. For those who are joining us, we’ll see you at 4:30pm!
Of course everyone else can join in via livestream at www.africabeta.co/live. Of course it’s not live…yet. I had the most entertaining video on the internet put in as a placeholder, but ST replaced it with a boring Africabeta thumbnail. Because branding.
The livestream will also be available to watch from right inside the WeChat app. Download from your respective appstores and install right now .
Of the ten startups that emerged from the WeChat Ideathon, two will be demoing some rather exciting stuff live on the Africabeta stage.
Finally. YOU don’t get to just watch. Every participant, live or via livestream also stand to win fabulous prizes, including brand new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge devices, courtesy our amazing sponsor, WeChat of course.To participate, simply download and sign in or sign up to WeChat to your device and follow the proceedings as we go along. You also need to follow WeChat’s official account, it’s ID is simply “WeCentral”. Magic is sure to happen, I promise!
