SEED and SWITCH-Africa Green announce Call for Applications

We are excited to invite you to apply to one of  TWO programs for future entrepreneurs in Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, and Kenya.

Program 1

You don’t have a clear business idea yet and want to partner with successful eco-inclusive enterprises around the globe?

Then apply for the SAG-SEED Replicator, funded by SWITCH Africa Green. In a unique one-day workshop we help future entrepreneurs who want to start a business, business owners wanting to expand or refine their business model, and NGOs wanting to fund their activities with revenues in kick-starting their own business in just one day.

This workshop will showcase thriving eco-inclusive business models around the globe and equip you with the tools to adapt these business models in order to create economic, social and environmental impacts in your community. Apply now in order to learn from the achievements and setbacks of successful entrepreneurs who have traveled similar paths before and use proven approaches to set up your own eco-inclusive enterprise.

Please check the application deadline for your country below:

  • Kenya: 13 June
  • Ghana: 13 June
  • Uganda: 13 June
  • South Africa: 20 June

Program 2

You do have a business idea and need expert support to turn it into reality?

Then the SAG-SEED Starter, funded by SWITCH Africa Green, is right for you. The program is targeted at future entrepreneurs who have a business idea and are looking for capacity-building support to turn it into reality. Under expert guidance, you and other selected teams will come together during two workshops to refine your business ideas and test them with potential customers and partners. After the SAG-SEED Starter program, your team will have a proven concept and will be ready to engage partners, funders, and go to the market.
