Conversational interfaces are incredibly hot right now.Thanks to native virtual assistants built into most of today’s smartphones (think: Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana), mobile users are surprisingly comfortable talking to a bot on their phone.We will select a cohort of start ups from across Africa every 6 months, and give them a 6 month Ed Tech dedicated support programme worth R500k (~k) and direct funding of on average R500k (k).
