Apply to Pitch for $25,000 at the Next Einstein Forum Innovation Salon in Nairobi

Deadline: December 20, 2019

The the Sciencepreneur Investor Meetup Call is now open. The call is launched by Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB), a leading technology innovation centre in Africa and the Next Einstein Forum (NEF) an initiative of the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) that connects science, society and policy in Africa and the rest of the world – with the goal to leverage science for human development globally.

The Sciencepreneur Investor Meetup will hold concurrently at the NEF Global Gatherings 2020; the largest science and innovation gathering on the African continent. The Investor Meetup idea came from discussions with the NEF Community of Scientists around how they can make the transition from lab to market, thereby commercializing their breakthrough solutions. This transition often is not a clear cut for scientists because tech transfer is weak, or otherwise nonexistent at most universities, centres of Academia, research & learning institutes.

The objective of this meetup is to support African science driven entrepreneurs (Sciencepreneurs) with pitch preparation and investment readiness sessions and thereafter, connect them to investors. These sessions will take place in the form of a bootcamp days before the NEF Global Gatherings in March 2020. The underlying goal is to show that successful African science entrepreneurs can demonstrate that, given the right investment and access to training and resources, they can compete on the regional and world stage.

This year, they are calling for submissions from Africa’s brightest scientists and technologists with solutions that fall under one or more of the AfDB High 5s – that is, areas that are essential in transforming the lives of African people and are consistent with the United Nations agenda on sustainable development goals (SDGs). These 5 areas are: Integrate Africa, Light up & Power Africa, Feed Africa, Industrialize Africa, and Improve the quality of life for the people of Africa.

NEF’s work is shaped by the belief that the next Einstein will be African and through the Sciencepreneur Investor Meetup, we are hoping to find the next generation of young African scientists and technologists that can solve some of the continents’ biggest problems.

Benefits

Winning solutions will take home $25,000 for each category, and a chance to pitch before investors during  the NEF Innovation Salon in Nairobi in March 2020, at the NEF Global Gathering where they can raise additional funding.

Eligibility

Those looking to apply must:

  • Hold a passport from an African country
  • Be of African descent
  • Have the ability to present their work in either English or French
  • Must be available to travel to Nairobi, Kenya from March 5 – March 13 2020.
