Automobili Lamborghini’s “The Epic Road Trip” nears its destination with commemorative collectible celebrating the brand’s 60th anniversary

After 7 months of exclusive NFT drops, existing customers will receive a custom collectible to celebrate the iconic supercar manufacturer’s diamond jubilee.

Sant’Agata Bolognese, March 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Automobili Lamborghini has nearly reached the end of “The Epic Road Trip”, an 8-month journey that culminates in a momentous milestone: the legendary brand’s 60th anniversary.

Developed in partnership with INVNT.ATOM™  and Web3 Pro, The Epic Road Trip invites owners and enthusiasts to collect the ultimate set of digital memorabilia to unlock utilities and experiences – including the opportunity to be one of the first to preview the latest Lamborghini model before it’s released to the public.

Collectors of “The Epic Road Trip” will also be rewarded with a variety of utilities and experiences, depending on their level of ownership:

  • Access to Collectors-only Discord community/channel
  • Exclusive mobile and desktop wallpapers
  • Centro Stile sketch from Mitja Borkert, Head of Design
  • GLB file for Lamborghini consumers to experience in the metaverse
  • An intimate VIP tour of the Lamborghini Sant’Agata headquarters
  • Exclusive first look at the latest Lamborghini model

As the 60th anniversary approaches, Lamborghini will leverage this opportunity to bring together in celebration both Lamborghini customers and “The Epic Road Trip” asset holders. “Lamborghini’s commitment to innovation extends beyond our super sports cars and into all aspects of our business – specially as we reach younger generations,” says Christian Mastro Marketing Director of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Epic Road Trip is the latest example of our unconventional approach which has powered us for six decades. As we celebrate 60 years of forward looking attitude, we want to reward customers and fans of the past, present, and future for their loyalty — giving them the chance to get further involvement and connection with the Brand.”

Lamborghini will commemorate the milestone with a 60th-anniversary digital collectible. Those visiting Lamborghini dealerships or attending IRL anniversary celebrations can scan a QR code to claim. At the same time, the commemorative collectible will be airdropped to “The Epic Road Trip” collectors who have purchased 2 or more NFTs across Drops 1 through 8.

In addition, all holders of the commemorative NFT will receive token-gated access to an exclusive, AMA-style session with senior Lamborghini executives discussing Lamborghini’s past, present, and future.

The final drop of “The Epic Road Trip” begins March 20th – 23rd, with the last opportunity for collectors to reach the finish line at Lamborghini NFT Marketplace.

While “The Epic Road Trip” will be concluding soon, this is only the beginning of Lamborghini’s Web3 journey as they continue to develop innovative engagement platforms that deepen their relationship with customers and fans which capture the essence of what it means to be a member of the Lamborghini community.

Africa-based SME Accelerator Programme Drives Opportunity for Dubai investors with Second Annual Pitch Event

The MultiChoice Africa Accelerator event, staged by African entertainment company MultiChoice Group in partnership with Dubai-based accelerator C3, will see 11 finalists from across Africa pitch for international funding

Dubai, March 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading African entertainment company MultiChoice Group will today host Middle East and other Global investors at a pitch event for finalists chosen in their MultiChoice Africa Accelerator Programme.

Held in collaboration with technical partner EOH, Galelo Africa and UAE-based social enterprise Companies Creating Change (C3), the programme aims to support the growth and development of SMEs from across the African continent.

While the inaugural event, held at Expo 2020 in January 2022, included only start-ups from South Africa, this year’s iteration has opened up to organisations from more African countries, with finalists from Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Angola, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Zambia and Ethiopia, along with South Africa. From a base of 29 businesses across 9 African countries, trained by the Accelerator programme in key entrepreneurial skills, 11 have been selected as finalists.  They include:

  • Gradesmatch (South Africa) – helping students and their families transition from education to economic opportunity
  • Botlhale AI (South Africa) – building natural language processing (NLP) tools for African languages
  • Zuri Health (Kenya) – providing affordable and accessible healthcare services to patients across Sub-Saharan Africa via mobile app, website, WhatsApp bot and SMS service
  • Dojah Inc (Nigeria) – end-to-end identity verification and compliance framework to strengthen confidence, credibility, and compliance across digital businesses
  • Crop2Cash (Nigeria) – digital financial service that allows smallholder farmers anywhere in Nigeria to open a bank account on their feature phones in under two minutes, with no internet required
  • Tendo (Ghana) – social commerce platform that enables anyone to sell online with zero capital
  • StarNews Mobile (Ivory Coast) – pan-African media-tech company whose mission is to give financial freedom to African creators from the distribution and monetisation of their digital content globally
  • MaTontine (Senegal) – digitise traditional, African savings groups in order to provide access to financial services for financially excluded women in Africa
  • Taskmoby (Ethiopia) – first digital marketplace in Ethiopia that connects customers with qualified home services providers (e.g. plumbers, cleaners, electricians), leveraging a mobile application, SMS/USSD solutions and a dedicated call centre
  • Mighty Finance Solution Ltd (Zambia) – providing MSMEs in emerging markets with seamless credit and financial solutions using artificial intelligence
  • Tupuca (Angola) – on-demand quick-commerce platform and logistical aggregator of uber-like drivers that allows users to order from multiple vendors and service providers ranging from restaurants, grocery stores, small retailers and courier services

Following the initial training, the 11 finalist start-ups attended a dedicated boot camp in Lusaka, Zambia, to learn more about how to shape their story for international investors, and to get “pitch ready” before their big presentations.

The programme ­­­­forms part of the MultiChoice Innovation Fund, aiming to connect companies with global investors to unlock business opportunities that will enrich their lives, the communities in which they function and the economy at large.

At a time when unemployment challenges and economic instability are high, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) are proving to be the engines of economic growth and job creation throughout the African continent.

The MultiChoice Africa Accelerator Programme specifically targets start-ups and small businesses in the technology sectors of health tech, agritech, fintech, edutech, the circular economy, and creative industries.

Global investors participating on a panel today represent some of the UAE’s leading investors and venture-capital firms including Middle East Venture Partners and WAMDA Capital.

“We were delighted to be able to connect our 2022 finalists with investors in Dubai to unlock $16m worth of funding at Expo 2020,” says Fhulufhelo Badugela, MultiChoice Africa CEO.

“Our vision is to build on the impact that this new cohort of SMEs make in their home markets and multiply it beyond what our start-up founders ever believed possible. I have no doubt these small businesses will be able to take everything they’ve learned so far to unlock transformative business funding.”

The event will be facilitated by C3 – a UAE-based social enterprise with a footprint in 17 countries across the Middle East and Africa.

C3 Managing Director Kevin Holliday commented, “The UAE has long held trade and business connections with the African continent, supported by the leadership of the country. There are so many innovative and inspiring start-ups coming out of Africa that really contribute to both grassroots communities and the economy at large.  The Multichoice Africa Accelerator recognises this and it’s something we’re really happy to be able to support.”
