ENGIE Challenge @ Africa Tech Summit
African startups with solutions in the credit scoring and financing space have the chance to secure a testing phase for their technologies with French utility company ENGIE at Africa Tech Summit Kigali in February.
ENGIE is looking for credit scoring solutions to provide proper, accurate, efficient and relevant:
- Business intelligence to improve and optimise the prospection and acquisition of future customers;
- Financing schemes for its existing and future customers;
- Scenarios to valorise customer data that aim to design customer profiles and match offers to customer needs.
Prizes will depend on the maturity of the solution. For early-stage ideas, ENGIE is offering USD $5,000 in cash funding to help to finance a prototype, or, for more developed solutions, it is offering a testing phase with ENGIE Africa in South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Tanzania or Benin.
Applications for the challenge are open until January 17, but startups will be selected on a rolling basis so early applications are advised.
Five selected startups will be provided with access to the full three days of content and networking opportunities at Africa Tech Summit in Kigali, but will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation expenses.
