Facebook is set to host in Nairobi a competition for 15 African start-ups that will culminate in the winner getting a Sh2.6 million ($25,000) award and a visit to San Francisco, the headquarters of the social media website. 

It is the culmination of a months-long search for the most promising start-ups on the continent.  Over 1,000 companies submitted applications to participate in the competition.

The TechCrunch Startup Battlefield is part of Facebook’s broader efforts to localize its Africa strategy. It follows the visit by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg to Africa last year.

The winning company will also get an opportunity to participate in Disrupt San Francisco 2018, an event where start-ups will exhibit their products and go up against their global peers. 

In addition to the TechCrunch competition, Facebook’s Africa team is also hosting a training workshop for developers and a conference for women in the technology sector.
