The programme will be implemented in Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, though individuals from the entire SADC region are eligible to apply.

Participants will gain access to acceleration services, and stand a chance to win prizes in their countries. They can also attend the SA Innovation Summit, and enjoy additional opportunities in and outside of the continent.

Applications are open here until April 20.
