Channel: M-Net City (DStv 115)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Drama

This 10-episode, one-hour series is set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami and weaves a complex narrative, focusing on the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success.

But this is not your average startup incubator story...

StartUp is about the emergence of GenCoin, a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea centered around digital currency - an idea that gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don't necessarily fit the mold of "tech entrepreneurs" and a crooked FBI agent who will go to any length necessary to take them down.
