Combat Covid-19 in Africa

The Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School and its many partners is calling for a proposal for a new initiative: Building Capacity to Combat COVID-19 in Africa: Ideas and Innovations from Young Entrepreneurs.

This is a new initiative supporting innovators and young entrepreneurs who are developing solutions to combat COVID-19 in Africa. It is open to students and young professionals (ages 18 to 35 years old) from around the world. Also, for those who are interested in offering innovative ideas for an effective private and public sector response to the pandemic throughout Africa.

The objective of the initiative is to encourage capacity building ideas and innovations from young entrepreneurs, within diverse teams, supported by senior decision-makers and experts in international development, academia, and the private sector. The teams will also receive support from a dedicated startup accelerator at the Wharton School, and benefit from unique networking opportunities with other young business leaders.
