Orange African Social Venture Prize

The Orange African Social Venture Prize is an initiative that offers financial assistance and expertise to young companies with innovative ICT projects that have a significant social impact. This is line with the socio-economic development agenda that Orange has set out for Africa.
The African Social Venture Prize is awarded to three entrepreneurs who offer solutions that use ICT in innovative ways to improve living conditions on the African continent. Projects may range from banking services to applications in essential areas like healthcare, education and agriculture.

In addition to receiving an endowment of between €10,000 and €25,000, the three winners will have the support of entrepreneurial and ICT experts for six months, to help them realise their projects. Last year, the over 600 entries we received proved that Africa is
budding with many great ideas and exciting potential. This year, we are expecting more great innovations.
Enter now and help change your community with Orange.

How to Enter:
