My African StartUp is now accepting applications for The African Rethink Awards. The award is aimed at developing African entrepreneurs to become experts and gain international recognition.

100 shortlisted startups will be invited to Paris for the African Rethink Awards where they will pitch to an audience of political and economic decision-makers and stakeholders from all around the world.

The event, hosted by French think-tank Planetworkshops, is part of a nine day event dedicated to African economies and tagged the Land of African Business (LAB).

The Land of African Business event will hold from the 2nd to the 11th of December 2015 and will conclude with the granting of 3 awards to three startups selected from a pool of 100 startups invited to present the vision behind their enterprises. The award categories are Grand Prize, Diaspora Award and Award for Women’s Entrepreneurship.

€10,000 goes to the grand prize winner and €5,000 each goes to the Diaspora Award winner and the winner of the Award for Women’s Entrepreneurship.

Applications for the African Rethink Awards is open to any startup founded by an African in Africa or Diaspora that is focused on solving problems – either social, environmental, economic or any other problems Africans have to deal with.

The deadline for applications is 10th October, 2015.
