Eich

While many people are aware of the fact that we are living in the year 2014, it seems that some still don’t grasp the concept of acceptance – even if they are in the public eye.

AFRICANUP

Startups, investors and tech hubs listen up – the newly launched AfricanUp platform will soon become your new best friend.

AfricanUp is a platform geared towards helping startups, technology hubs and accelerators connect with each other, as well as helping investors find startups. All in all, AfricanUp is a platform for the technology eco-system at large to tell the world it’s story.

AfricanUp is the brain child of South African entrepreneurs Paul Cartmel and Nic Haralambous. Through a connection between the power of New Media Lab’s Lenticular technology, and Haralambous’ business-development, AfricanUp was born.

Haralambus has said that the idea with AfricanUo is not to revolutionize the tech industry, but rather to just get down to basics and offer a platform for startups to connect with investors, accelerators and more:

“There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when launching a platform like AfricanUp. Our goal isn’t to build a revolutionary technology business. Our goal is to connect startups, founders, investors and accelerators from around the world,” he said.  (more…)
