Local startup TaxTim has been chosen as one of the top 40 startups in Africa to take part in the first DEMO Africa conference.
DEMO is a global launch pad for some of the world’s biggest brands. This year, in partnership with VC4Africa, DEMO will host its first DEMO Africa event in Kenya which aims to connect African startups to each other and the global ecosystem. The most innovative companies from 16 different African countries have been selected and will be able to demonstrate their products to investors, VC’s and other technology minded entrepreneurs.
“We are very excited to be taking part in this year’s DEMO Africa conference. It will enable us to demonstrate our product and service whilst networking with other influential players in the industry. For TaxTim specifically it will mean access to all these resources as well as the opportunity of forming mutually beneficial relationships with other likeminded startups,” says Marc Sevitz, co-founder of TaxTim.
After successfully launching their multi-language offering last month, TaxTim will now be looking to expand their product into other African markets.
“This is a first in Africa and we are very excited and humbled by being selected. We want to show the rest of Africa and the world what South Africa can produce as well as expanding TaxTim beyond SA’s borders,” Evan Robinson, co-founder of TaxTim.
Local startup Gigham has also been chosen to represent SA alongside TaxTim at DEMO Africa. We’ll be featuring Gigham in an upcoming post so watch this space!
