The African Impact Challenge, which helps participants in developing ideas that create markets and use technology to address the biggest challenges facing the continent, is now accepting applications.
The African Impact Challenge is expanding to South Africa this year and introducing a pan-African health-focused stream, after a pilot in Ghana in 2020, a challenge in Kenya in 2021, and an edition in Rwanda in 2022.
“Our goal is to successfully launch innovations across the continent that meet our criteria for selection. We achieve this by giving early founders the funding, resources, and direction they need to start from scratch and develop workable solutions, according to the organizers.
The top teams will fly to Toronto, Canada for up to four months, with all expenses paid, to learn and grow their entrepreneurial network.
They will also win up to US$25,000 in grant financing or equity investment.
Young Africans (those under the age of 39) who are dedicated full-time to creating positive change via the use of technology are invited to apply.
The deadline for applications is April 15.
