Swiss sub-Saharan Africa business development program 2018 (trip to Switzerland)


If you are an ambitious entrepreneur looking to maximize the potential of your business, and go to Switzerland, apply for the Swiss sub-Saharan Africa business development program 2018.

The Swiss sub-Saharan Africa business development program is looking to boost entrepreneurs and graduate students looking to grow. The development will happen by benefiting from know-how and exposure through this program.

The program, in 2018, will gather entrepreneurs and graduate students seeking growth opportunities in two innovation hotspots for a combined 7 day workshop. The hotspots are Nairobi and in Switzerland.

There will be a 3-day workshop in Nairobi from the 10th to 12th of December, 2018. It will involve learning how to deliver unique customer value and define a striking business plan. Another day will be set aside for learning how to shape a winning team and secure funding, for growth. Lastly, participants will discover how to make a convicing pitch. They will also benefit from individual coaching sessions.

After a presentation, a Swiss-African jury will determine the top 8 to head to Switzerland in 2019. Over there, participants will be involved in an “action-packed” business development boot camp.

What’s more? The Swiss sub-Saharan Africa business development program will cater for accommodation expenses of the program in Nairobi, plus fully fund the trip to Switzerland.

  • Be a graduate student or entrepreneur from a sub-Saharan African innovation hub
  • Have strong link to academia with project or company based on research or technology developed at a local University or research institution
  • Product or service should be in the following fields: mobile health, pharmacometrics, innovative financing, digital humanities or knowledge transfer
