Startup Challenge

We're looking for innovative tech-based solutions for a sustainable environment in food security, renewable energy, agriculture, water management, urban sustainability, and transportation or any new application of ICT in climate action.

African countries are more prone to the negative effects of climate change. In light of this, there is an Africa-focused prize for African tech entrepreneurs, to recognize their efforts.

Winners will be selected by an international panel of expert judges.
