AGEA Idea Competition 2020

Ghana & Rwanda

Challenges abound in all aspects of our day to day lives. Entrepreneurs identify these challenges as opportunities to create solutions with economic and/or social impact.

The African German Entrepreneurship Academy (AGEA) is organizing an Online Idea Competition 2020, which provides an opportunity for AGEA alumni and tertiary students in Ghana and Rwanda, to develop innovative entrepreneurial solutions to current challenges in Africa.

The Online Idea Competition is open to ideas from all economic fields, and not restricted to any industry or sector. The idea must, however, be an innovative and sustainable solution to a challenge in African contexts.
