The target is mainly early-stage startups. If you fall into that category, apply now!

The Accel Entrepreneurship Awards aim to showcase emerging entrepreneurial talent from Africa to venture capitalists (VCs) and industry specialists.

The awards is happening this Spring in London and will see 3 top startups get a portion of £15 000. You have until 23 March to send your applications.

The top 3 winning startups will get a share of £15000 Accel Entrepreneurship Awards

For entrepreneurs to be eligible they must have a proof of concept or a minimum viable product.

In addition, applicants must be able to demonstrate interest in getting mentorship and ability to secure further funding for their ideas.

Entrepreneurs that make it to the top list will receive a fully sponsored trip to London in April where they will participate in a mentorship programme with London Business School members.

All the participants will get ready for their May pitch and present their enterprises in front of business professionals, industry experts and investors at the London Business School African Business Summit (LBS ABS). The winning team will be selected from the Summit.

Good luck to all the applicants.
