10 Start-up Competitions for African Entrepreneurs
African Innovation Prize
The African Innovation Prize was founded in 2010 as a U.K.-based charity organization. By hosting business planning competitions in three Rwanda-based universities and one Sierra Leone-based university, the organization spurs student innovation and entrepreneurship in Africa. Applicants must submit business plans. The competitions run during the academic year, so interested student applicants should visit the organization’s website for information on the 2014 competitions.
