The World Economic Forum has a contest which is open to any woman entrepreneur who has a business that is less than three years old into the market; for the search for the top leading female tech innovators in Africa.
Apart from the age of the business, for you to qualify the business must use innovative technology and have at least one year of revenue generation. It also has to demonstrate social and economic potential.
This is the second year that this competition will be running. Last year’s competition was impactful and the winners were women from across all the sectors.
The Forum will take place in Durban, South Africa under the theme Achieving Inclusive Growth. The dates are from the 3rd to 5th of May 2017.
Applications should be submitted by April 17th, 2017.
The selected entrepreneurs will be invited to South Africa and all the expenses catered for.
Through these forum leaders from business, civil society and government will explore solutions to create economic opportunities for all.
The Forum will provide insight from leading experts on how Africa will be affected by the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, particularly in terms of safeguarding the region’s economies from negative disruption and exploiting opportunities for further growth and development.
