Orange African Social Venture Contest 2nd Edition. Register NOW!!

Orange has launched the second edition of its Orange African Social Venture Prize. The goal is to promote social innovation that supports African development through ICT.

Orange will provide a financial endowment as well as expert support to the young companies that put forward innovative projects with a significant social impact.

Last year, more than 600 candidates responded to the call for projects, reflecting the strong entrepreneurial spirit and the high potential of telecommunications services in Africa.

The Orange African Social Venture Prize will be awarded once again this year to three entrepreneurs or start-ups offering solutions that use ICT in innovative ways to meet the needs of communities in Africa. In addition to receiving an endowment of 10,000 to 25,000 euros, the three prize-winners will receive six months of support from entrepreneurial and ICT experts.

Applications are NOW open. Visit  Orange’s pan-African web portal at http://www.starafrica.com.
