Launched by UNECA (United Nations Economic Commission for Africa) in partnership with Betacube, the TAW (Tech African Women) program concluded on 31 August 2022 with a three-day Tanzania bootcamp.
The two winning startups in Tanzania received program participation awards, with the first winner, Ujana, receiving $2,000. The selection was based on the market potential of each startup idea and took place after pitching her competition in front of a local panel of judges representing various stakeholders in the ecosystem.
On the final day of the Tanzania Boot Camp, an awards ceremony was held for the candidates. Nominated are Ujana, his e-commerce platform for sexual and reproductive health products (#1), and a food app that recommends thousands of healthy food options for people with dietary issues. It was Plate AI (2nd place).
The two winning startups in Tanzania went one step further by participating in a two-month online incubation program. A final ceremony for eight winning startups selected from Tunisia, Senegal, Tanzania and Ethiopia will take place at his UNECA Conference Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Each startup is invited to submit an idea to win the program’s final prize (his $7,000 to the best startup).
To support digital innovation and female entrepreneurship in Africa, TAW (Tech African Women) aims to achieve the objectives of the Connected African Girls Coding Camp programme. The program promotes African integration, generates inclusive economic growth, fosters job creation, bridges the digital divide, eradicates poverty for Africa’s socio-economic development, and promotes Africa’s modern Own digital management tools.
