Kudoti wins AIM Startup / Startup Mzansi South Africa Virtual Pitch Competition 2020

Recommended Posts

Kudoti, a waste tech startup has won the Aim Virtual Startup Pitch Competition for 2020 and will head to Dubai to compete at Aim Startup National Champions League, later this year.

Organised by the Annual Investment Meeting (Aim) Organising Committee and the Startup Mzansi Foundation the Aim Virtual Startup Pitch Competition South Africa forms part of a bigger competition that will have over 80 countries going head to head for the winning title.

Co-founded by Gift Lubele, a former research engineer, Kudoti utilises hardware and software technology to enhance recycling rates and increase efficiency in the waste industry. Using IoT sensors, Kudoti collects data which is then combined with their developed software solutions to improve waste logistics and processing.


Within the pitch, Lubele shared that the main challenges that the waste industry in Africa is facing are twofold; a high level of inefficiency caused by paper-based processes and resources are wasted by manual services whereas these services could be easily automated.

The two main issues collide together to result in very low margins among key waste stakeholders.

In response to these challenges, Kudoti has streamlined the processes and digitization essentially eliminating all unnecessary processes in waste management companies,  increasing  efficiency through optimization of existing resources available and lastly improve performance and analytics through measurements of key activities in the waste industry. - Ventureburn

The platform has been enabled to be suitable for recycling SME’s in the informal sector and large waste management companies.
