THRIVE Africa Challenge
February 4 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree
The THRIVE AFRICA Challenge, in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, is part of THRIVE’s Global Initiative which aims to enable the needed transformations in Africa’s food value chain as highlighted in the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals. The Challenge will accomplish this by identifying, promoting, accelerating, and investing in innovative early-stage African startups that are creating new and alternative paths for a more efficient and sustainable global food system.
One winning startup will receive the THRIVE AFRICA Challenge Award, brand exposure, participation in an all-expenses-paid Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp, access to the THRIVE ecosystem, and a spot at pitch finals for Samsung’s Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) and the award-winning THRIVE VII Accelerator Program (March-June 2021) which includes investment and pitching at THRIVE | Forbes Demo Day in Salinas, California, USA. Check out this year’s Demo Day here.
