Afric’Up Pitch Challenge

Join the afric'Up Pitch network and speak out in this important Challenge!


Are you a startup owner? Do you want to attract new investors? You need funding to grow your project?

We offer you an experience for training and preparing you to pitch before a jury in our event. The jury will be composed of one or more investment funds that are engaged in African entrepreneurial dynamics.

The selected startups will also have the opportunity to meet investors, multinational executives, financial institutions, experts, incubators, government officials, policymakers from the African continent and internationally.

Meet people from a wide range of sectors and connect with other talented startups from Africa and other continents. In particular, several European startups from the African diaspora.

Afric’Up Pitch’s goal is to liberate the African entrepreneurial potential while highlighting the best and most innovative entrepreneurs and startups in Africa but also creating markets for those in seed phases.

This year, Afric’Up Pitch will reward the best African startup while giving great importance and visibility to female startups.

Participation in the Competition is open and free to all startups of African and Tunisian nationalities.
