The Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform, ADEPT, has been discussing African diaspora engagement in Africa for years and supporting members of this diaspora in order for them to have increased influence and impact on the African continent. In the beginning of 2021, ADEPT established an internal committee centred on Youth and Entrepreneurship. By so doing, it seeks to better support activities undertaken by African diaspora youth.  Also, ADEPT strives to make this one of the most important pillars in the coming years. 

Therefore, ADEPT has chosen to reward innovative and inspiring projects undertaken by the African diaspora youth in Africa. On Friday 26 November, during the first edition of its Diaspora Youth Talk and in partnership with ZidiCircle, ADEPT will organise a pitching competition to let diaspora entrepreneurs present the results they have achieved on the ground. The most innovative and successful entrepreneur will be rewarded.

We are delighted to invite you to participate ! Below are the criteria to a participation:  

  • Entrepreneurs from the African diaspora in Europe and aged between 18 to 35
  • The project must be located on the African continent
  • The activity must have impacted more than 10 people directly or indirectly
  • The activity must have an innovative element
  • The project should be replicable in other African countries

The winner will receive a prize worth €1000 ! 

Also, the winner will get a fully-sponsored Zidicircle Diaspora Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (April 2022 Cohort) where he/ she will access to:

 

  • 10 modules of business training
  • A chance to pitch to our venture backers investors
  • Fast-tracked fundraising

For more details about the Bootcamp read more here: https://zidicircle.com/event/deb-spring-2022/?event_date=2022-04-05

All participants have until Monday 22/11 at 5.30 pm to submit their proposal via this participation form.
