Irish Tech Challenge South Africa is extending an invitation to South African startups to apply for their initiative aimed at fostering collaborations between Irish and South African startups.

In collaboration with Wits University’s Tshimologong Digital Precinct in South Africa and Dogpatch Labs in Ireland, the Irish Tech Challenge is organized with the support of the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), the Technology Innovation Agency, and the Embassy of Ireland in South Africa.

The 2024 Irish Tech Challenge aims to further enhance the achievements of previous editions and expedite the expansion of tech companies owned by South Africans aligning with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We particularly encourage businesses involved in clean and green technology, healthcare, education, and water sanitation and hygiene to submit their applications.

The Tech Challenge aims to address pressing global issues while promoting economic growth and creating employment opportunities in South Africa.

Seven selected startups are set to receive a range of benefits, including grant funding of EUR10,000 (US$11,000) each, a meticulously planned 10-day trip to Ireland to network with partners and global customers, access to Ireland’s top-notch tech expertise and business acceleration, and increased visibility through the support of the South African and Irish governments.

The application deadline is April 26th.

Go to the website for further details or to apply.
