The SusTech4Africa in a nutshell

After a selection process, around ten entrepreneurs are invited to take part in a "boostcamp" lasting several days devoted to optimising their business model.

An external jury evaluates the participating companies during a pitch day. Projects are assessed on the basis of economic, social and ecological sustainability criteria.

The winning projects are selected by a panel of external judges.

The winning projects receive investment capital in the form of a tailor-made social loan and benefit from further in-depth support to launch or develop their business.
