Deadline April 17 2017
The search is on for the World Economic Forum’s top leading female tech innovators in Africa, who will be invited to share their experiences and engage with leaders at the Forum’s regional meeting this spring.
This is the second year we’ve run the competition. Last year’s winners were inspiring women working on everything from solar-powered vending carts to paperless health insurance.
“Africa’s best prospects for inclusive growth lie in its ability to tap into its vast pool of entrepreneurial talent,” said Elsie Kanza, Head of Africa at the World Economic Forum. “We want Africa’s top female tech entrepreneurs to join us so we can celebrate them as role models and so they can help governments and policymakers create conditions for others to flourish.
- The contest is open to any female entrepreneur whose business is less than three years old, uses innovative technology or business models, and has at least one year of revenue generation.
- The business must also be able to demonstrate social and economic potential.
Selected applicants will be invited to share their experiences and engage with leaders at the Forum’s regional meeting in Durban South Africa.
