After a series of online workshops, Turbine Test Drive 4 Pitch Night was organized on 26 June 2020.

7 projects were allotted with 3 minutes each to pitch their projects in front of our judges panel which comprised of Olivier Ma, Dominic Provencal, Zulaika Sunthbocus and Isabelle de Melo.

For this edition, Turbine had 3 different sponsors PwC, Spoon Consulting and MCB who offered Rs 75,000 each to the most innovative, promising and impactful business ideas.

Kare Ver- Most Impactful Business Idea

Brando Quirin won the price of the most Impactful Business Idea sponsored by MCB for his start up Kare Ver.

Following Covid-19, Brando developed a kit which allows people to plant their own vegetables. Made by recycled materials, Kare Ver has its own irrigation system integrated in the kit and is fully protected from insects. The aim is to make people experience the fun of growing their own vegetables at home to simplify their lives.

Metennkoste- Most Promising Business Idea

Hishaam Ibrahim and Marie Lasplaces won the prize of the most Promising Business Idea sponsored by PwC.

Metennkoste is a platform which allows to collect and spend money for a common expense or event. Its services will benefit a wide number of people, from a group of friends pooling money together to afford the perfect gift to a group of students raising money for their annual study trip.

It makes collecting and managing money from a large number of people hassle free and acts as an intermediary between businesses and their potential clients.

Flit Ride- The most Innovative Business Idea

Tolotra Samuel won the prize of the most Innovative Business Idea sponsored by Spoon Consulting.

Flit Ride aims to bring together existing taxi drivers and their clients through its mobile app. It allows taxi drivers to bid their different fares and clients choose the ones which suit them best. Flit Ride also gives the option of carpooling to riders.

The interesting part about Flit Ride is that payment mode will not be limited to cash or credit cards only. It will adopt the different payments that exist such as Juice and MyT money which are now common in Mauritius and will also introduce Flit Tokens.
