On September 26th, Kuunda 3D founder, Elizabeth Rogers, pitched our business model to Airbus in the Airbuz Bizlab #Africa4Future competition supported by Novato Africa. We took part in this pitch day as Airbus was specifically looking for African startups in the areas of:
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
- Satellite Operations and Imagery
- 3D printing
- Smart Sensors
- Artificial Intelligence
The finalists included 8 Kenyan companies, 1 Ugandan, 1 Ethiopian and 1 from Sierra Leone. It was an inspirational day as all the startups are doing impactful work with innovative technologies.
Unfortunately Kuunda 3D did not win the competition, but we were given great feedback on the pitch presentation and congratulations for already successfully operating in Tanzania and Kenya. A Kenyan company, Illuminum Greenhouses, won the competition which includes a trip to Airbus Bizlab headquarters in Europe for mentoring and access to investors. Congratulations for their success!
Kuunda 3D is proud to be among East Africa’s best startups using innovative technologies to create real impact. We look forward to further developing our impact projects in a sustainable manner. Get in touch if you’d like to collaborate or support us!
