The judges for the Unhacked pitch competition for African tech startups will score the startups and we will also give the audience a chance to vote as well.

The votes are then collated and three winners will emerge. The judges will be made up of investors and experienced entrepreneurs. It will also include technology, product, and marketing experts.

Finalists will be selected from the pool of applications and those finalists will pitch over a live stream to our judges and the public.
