Wimbart Office Hours – Shortlist Announced
We’re pleased to announce the final shortlist for the first edition of the Wimbart Office Hours Programme. We received a high volume of strong applications and continue to be inspired by the number of innovative ideas being developed across Africa. In fact, we were so impressed that we added two additional places to the inaugural cohort. The successful applicants cover a range of sectors from health, to agriculture and finance, and we’re looking forward to equipping them with the PR skills they will need to support their businesses.
Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to the 22 start-ups taking part in the first ever Wimbart Office Hours Programme:
Passage Telecommunications – Nigeria
The Bulb Africa – Nigeria
Lendsqr – Nigeria
Novel – Nigeria
Growd Global – Kenya
Kumva – Rwanda
Pledre – Nigeria
Doctor 4 Africa – Pan-Africa
Ovarec – Nigeria
Scrapays Technologies – Nigeria
The programme kicks off with an in-depth PR Webinar and Q+A with our Founder, Jessica Hope. Each start-up will then have two dedicated one-on-one mentoring sessions with senior Wimbart PR professionals and have the opportunity to tackle questions that are specific to their business needs and growth strategy.
We want many more start-ups to benefit from taking part in our Wimbart Office Hours, and so we expect to host a second Programme later on in 2020. Be sure to keep an eye out for when we make our next announcement.
And of course, we regularly update our blog with news and articles on communications and PR – please keep checking in.
