The Global Startup Awards (GSA), the largest independent startup ecosystem competition, has launched its 2023 edition in partnership with the Global Innovation Initiative Group (GIIG) to provide a continent-wide opportunity for SDG-aligned solutions with global relevance, focusing on agriculture, climate, commerce, education, healthcare, and mobility & logistics.

Opened on November 04, 2022, the year-long competition will see entrants compete at a national level before vying for their spot as a regional finalist.

Thereafter, the continent’s top innovators will gather in-person at the GSA Africa Summit in August 2023, for a two-day conference and gala dinner to convene, connect and celebrate Africa’s most innovative minds.

Winners of the African Startup Awards will also have exclusive access to the GSA Alumni Network, an invite-only club that connects members with regional and global stakeholders while also providing matchmaking opportunities between active investors, successful startups, accelerator and incubator programs, and like-minded government initiatives.

While the judges are said to have a particular interest in startups championing Web3 technologies, sustainable business models, green innovation, and diversity in the workplace, entrepreneurs making an impact in the following key areas are highly encouraged to apply:

  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Inclusive Economic Growth
  • Tech and Innovation

Applications for the 2023 season of GSA Africa will close on 31 January 2023, with entrepreneurs, startups, and innovation organizations at all stages of the growth cycle invited to apply.
