Sponsors of Global Startup Awards seek expansion across Africa



Global Startup Awards

Sponsors of the Global Startup Awards, being the largest independent startup ecosystem awarding platform, have initiated a drive to expand across Africa. According to the body, the plan is to thrust beyond its existing territories.

To this end, the ambition is expand into the South, North, East and West African territories. Reviews, from experts familiar with the activities of the organisation, noted that the Global Startup Awards was aimed to find, recognise and connect the future-shapers of the digital age from all around the world.

Reports from industry insights further revealed that it was first launched in Africa in 2018 as the Southern Africa Awards before undergoing rebranding in line with the pan-African launch. Hence, the new continent-wide awards, as projected, will include all 54 African countries.

Speaking on the development, Péter Kovács, Global Startup Awards Founding Partner, said the expansion was necessary as it was a way to fulfil its purpose of overcoming cross-board collaboration. He said: “This expansion is critical as the awards were born from a vision to overcome borders for collaboration. Now, with the addition of these territories, we are able to connect, support, and celebrate key players in more than 105 countries across 10 regions.”
