Africa Business Plan Competition
Wharton Africa Business Plan competition is an annual event intended to
promote the involvement of Africans in the entrepreneurial process and
to foster an environment that supports the creation of new ventures.

and expertise available in the venture capital community with the goal
of giving African entrepreneurs access to: 1) more resources; 2) start-up
financial capital; 3) mentorship from business advisors and seasoned entrepreneurs.
