What is Sankore Pitch Competition Tour (PCT)?

PCT is an exercise conducted by Sankore 2.0 to scout for brilliant tech projects and ideas that need funding and eventual incubation.

According to Sankore:

“We educate and nurture talented individuals to become world-class developers. The nurturing part of this mission involves funding and incubation projects that promise to contribute to providing blockchain solutions in Africa.

The PCT therefore involves identifying developers and their projects for prospective funding and incubation.”
