Are you a researcher or a Master/PhD student in an African University? Do you have an innovative business start-up idea originating from your research results? If so, then keep your eyes on this space to have the opportunity to participate in the 2022 edition of the AGEA Business Idea Competition.
In developing and sustaining the entrepreneurial activities in African Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs), the African German Entrepreneurship Academy (AGEA) initiative works hand in hand with committed academic and corporate partners in Africa and Germany to promote practice-oriented entrepreneurship and start-ups in Africa. The AGEA Business Idea Competition was established as one of the main initiatives to facilitate the establishment of start-ups as a university or research-based spinoffs.
As done in the previous versions, innovative research outcomes from HEIs are explored and developed into viable products and services to be introduced into the market. The 2022 edition of the AGEA Business Idea Competition is expected to begin on June 1st, 2022 when the application portal opens. The competition targets university professors, lecturers, master’s students, Ph.D. candidates, and alumni as entrepreneurs to transform their scientific research into start-up businesses.
