Application Deadline: March 25th, 2022

A pan-African initiative developed to recognize and support the most innovative and impactful African startups across three key sectors – climate technology, health technology, and financial technology – was launched by VivaTech with support from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in the first edition of the AfricaTech Awards.

Tech businesses have the potential to deliver much-needed answers to critical global concerns, promote inclusion, and promote long-term sustainability. Even yet, and despite increased investor interest, businesses across the continent are still struggling to raise the funds they require to scale their discoveries. Through the AfricaTech Awards, we hope to assist in the development of new market prospects for African companies by enlisting the support and inspiration of investors, policymakers, other entrepreneurs, and major institutions in the technology sector.
