LaunchLab, on behalf of MultiChoice, hosted a workshop on 3 March 2016 to engage with the media, tech and innovation community. We then received 3 minute video entertainment pitches of business ideas online as well as in person throughout April. From dozens of pitches we selected 10 finalists that pitched to an audience and panel of MultiChoice executives on the 18th of May 2016, where the 3 winners were selected for further engagement and incubation.
From these 3 winners, Numberboost and Eightstreet Stories have seen success.
Numberboost has built a successful company building AI solutions and is currently profitable.
Eightstreet Stories has secured a contract with MultiChoice to produce a mini-series and test it in their market before securing future projects.
