StudENTs for Africa (SfA) is the entrepreneurship programme that aims to invest in your business ideas for creating social and economic development in Africa, offering you high-quality support services to become an innovator and build your professional future.

The initiative, combined with the StartUp Day, promoted in partnership with the Alma Mater Foundation and IBM, provides support services for the development and consolidation of students’ business projects, cash benefits offered by sponsors and access to the network of relations with African universities and services for business start-ups based in Africa. 

You can also count on consulting and coaching with business experts in Africa to draft the business plan for your project.

If your idea is selected, the team will take part in a training, consulting and coaching programme with business experts in Africa, to help develop the business project.
