Call for bright sparks to take part in pan-African challenge

18 March 2016

The MTN Solution Space, in partnership with leading online retailer Jumia and the MTN Group, has launched an entrepreneurial challenge to students across Africa who have online-based solutions relevant to the African market.

Watch the MTNEC video:

The MTN Entrepreneurship Challenge (MTNEC) throws down the gauntlet to students from more than 60 universities in 13 countries across the African continent, including UCT, and offers amazing prizes to the winners.

It is open to current and recent graduates (from academic years 2014/2015 and 2015/2016) of an African university. All participating teams must be made up of two or three members, at least one of which must be a student or recent graduate of an African university. (This allows for external members to be part of a team.)
