DEADLINE MAY 30, 2019
The contest aims to reward the best innovative and socially responsible business project in Africa and the Middle East. This 9th edition unfolds in two phases: first, the candidates participate in a national competition, then an international jury gives a grand prize to the best national winners. Each time, the viewers of this site have a chance to add a name to the shortlist through a voting process.
How it works
The best Orange Social Venture Prize projects in each country win prizes and are selected for the international phase. Participants compete first with fellow local entrepreneurs; the best ones can win more money and support from Orange if the international jury selects them.
