A new competition has been launched for software startups in South Africa, offering support in launching their businesses.
Software firm Byte Orbit is driving the new Startup Knight competition, with the sponsorship of Microsoft, Nokia, Bandwidth Barn, Ching Payments and 8ta. The winning startup will receive software, office space, connectivity, funding and support.
Byte Orbit says it is the first South African software development company to offer young tech entrepreneurs such an opportunity.
Byte Orbit CEO Amir Ramdath challenged other, established technology firms to take similar steps to identify and incubate innovative entrepreneurs in South Africa.
