Jugend Eine Welt is anoth­er sup­port­ing mem­ber of Startup|Energy Africa

The Startup|Energy ini­tia­tive for the pro­mo­tion of East African start-ups in the field of decen­tralised renew­able ener­gy sup­ply has received a fur­ther sup­port­ing mem­ber in the form of Jugend Eine Welt.

Jugend Eine Welt — Don Bosco Aktion Öster­re­ich is an Aus­tri­an aid organ­i­sa­tion that has been work­ing since 1997 to improve the future prospects of chil­dren and young peo­ple on the mar­gins of soci­ety world­wide. Fol­low­ing the prin­ci­ple “Edu­ca­tion over­comes pover­ty”, Jugend Eine Welt sup­ports aid projects, schools, pro­grammes for street chil­dren and edu­ca­tion­al projects in Asia, Africa, Latin Amer­i­ca, the Mid­dle East and East­ern Europe.

The impor­tance of the ini­tia­tive — with GIZ as the main spon­sor — is also shown by the fact that a total of 46 local star­tups applied for Ener­gy Camp East Africa! Five par­tic­i­pants were select­ed to participate.

Ben­e­fits for the select­ed start-ups par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Ener­gy Camp:

  • Indi­vid­ual coach­ing by expe­ri­enced entrepreneurs
  • Par­tic­i­pa­tion in the work­shop in Kampala
  • Par­tic­i­pa­tion in the final Startup|Energy Award. The win­ner of the award receives a prize mon­ey of 5.000 Euro for the fur­ther devel­op­ment of his startup.
  • Net­work­ing with part­ners from the Startup|Energy com­mu­ni­ty: investors, part­ner com­pa­nies, accelerators
