Applications open for the 2017 Innovation Prize For Africa

Applications are now open for the sixth edition of the Innovation Prize for Africa (IPA) Awards that’s expected to happen in 2017. Submissions will run for three months  – from Tuesday, September 27, 2016 to Tuesday, January 3, 2017 – and it’s open to enterprises and individuals that have invested in delivering market-oriented solutions for African-led development.

IPA is an initiative of the African Innovation Foundation (AIF). Every year, interested startups compete for a chance to be one of the three winners who share the $150,000 prize (basically $5,000 each).

IPA is looking for applications in social and economic innovation including manufacturing and service industry, health and well-being, agriculture and agri-business, environment, energy and water, and ICT showcasing ground-breaking innovations. Other ventures are also welcome to apply, though.
