Up to five start-ups are selected from all applications received on time. Each startup (team) receives intensive coaching by an experienced entrepreneur. This is how you develop your business idea and your business plan.

At the end of the coaching there is a mature presentation for the final workshop in Kampala. Here, your concept is critically questioned by the other participating startups as well as investors, entrepreneurs and energy experts. In this way, you will gain valuable insights into how your business idea can become a success.

The best start-ups will then be awarded attractive prizes: for example, a sponsored participation in the Energy Camp in Freiburg or cash prizes for the most creative business idea as well as for the most innovative social business concept.

At the end of the Energy Camp, all participating startups will be included in the Startup| Energy Community: a growing community of start-ups in Europe and Africa working to build a decentralised renewable energy supply. The community meets regularly online to exchange experiences or give interesting lectures by experts in the field of decentralized renewable energies.
