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.

After the public voting process organised as part of the Online Public Day Event, the following ideas were voted as the Top 3 winners of the AGEA Idea Competition 2020.
