Launch of the SAG-SEED Starter Months in South Africa
Want to become an eco-entrepreneur? The Switch Africa Green-SEED Starter Months invite entries from teams who develop green and inclusive business solutions to one of the key social and environmental challenges in South Africa. The three challenges in South Africa are: Sustainable Agriculture, Manufacturing and Waste Management.
From March to May the future entrepreneurs will receive support on turning their ideas into a business. During two workshops in Pretoria (7-9 March and 3-4 May) the selected teams will work on developing and refining their business ideas. The period between the two workshops will be used for facilitated testing of the idea with potential customers and partners. In the end, teams are ready to go public with their ideas and engage in a crowdfunding campaign. The most successful teams can win additional capacity building support for their enterprise.
Applications are open until 22 February. For more information and how to apply click here.
Your are not in South Africa? The SAG-SEED Starter Months will also take place in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, and Uganda later this year.
