Black Enterprise: Where are you currently in your program? Are you guys looking for a new cohort?

Ozoigbo: We are recruiting our next cohort for DEMO Africa 2017 in the Spring. We are also program partners for Geeks on a Plane with 500 Startups. For the five startups that won DEMO Africa2016, they will be joining us for the LIons@frica Innovation Tour in February 2017. We will be premiering our movie – Venture – in February as well.

On the educational side, we continue to encourage technology transfer, and facilitate innovation exchanges between governments and institutions. We will also be expanding our training programs for African media entrepreneurs through the Hollywood in Focus initiative.

All of these programs and more are detailed on our website, and
