The AfDB Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab is organising the #AfricaVsVirus Challenge as an opportunity to create tech and non-tech solutions to tackle some of the most pressing challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic. We are calling on socially committed citizens worldwide, problem solvers, creative minds, health experts, programmers, graphic and web-designers to come together in a 72-hour digital collaborative process to bring about ground-breaking solutions addressing some of the social and economic challenges posed by the coronavirus.
Following the #AfricaVsVirus Challenge the best solutions will be selected and will be fully implemented with partners and donors in Africa and worldwide.
20 ideas will be selected to participate in the Seedstars Investment Readiness Program, a one month educational program that will further support the ideas in getting to MVP. In addition, the top 3 ideas will be eligible for over 50K USD in in-kind prizes and other prizes to help further support their idea.
Deadline to submit is April 15th. Details here.
