Moldiag, an e-health start-up that produces diagnostic kits to detect diseases and viral infections, has been announced the winner of the Moroccan leg of the DEMO Africa Innovation Tour in Casablanca.
The start-up Launchpad competition is visiting a host of cities across the continent to pick start-ups for the event and has already named winners in Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Johannesburg.
A total of 13 start-ups pitched in the presence of a local judging panel at the Casablanca event, with Molding emerging the winner from a final round of pitching that also included start-ups Break, Nuppio Learn, Interactive Rh and BIG4COM.
The start-up will now go on to compete against the winning start-ups from the upcoming events in Cairo and Tunis for a place at the main event, again to be held in Morocco, in October.
“With no doubt, the innovative products we have seen in Casablanca have set the pace for all Northern African Innovation Tours to follow, and we are greatly looking forward to seeing start-ups in Tunis and Cairo pitch,” said Khalid Machchate of DEMO Africa.
Applications for DEMO Africa close on July 15.
