Seedstars/Shell Foundation Energy, Mobility & Agriculture Innovation Program 2021 for African tech entrepreneurs

The search is on for Sub-Saharan African startups with tech solutions aimed at impacting positively lower income communities through those industries.

 Seedstars and Shell Foundation have joined forces to look for sustainable, scalable and innovative startups addressing universal access to energy-related challenges, as well as sustainable agriculture, mobility and transportation.

With support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), they are launching the Energy, Mobility and Agriculture Innovation Program to find African tech entrepreneurs in the mobility, transportation, energy, and agriculture space in order to provide them with the resources, training, and potential funding to scale their startups and impact.

The objective of this program is to support, catalyse and train the highest potential tech-based early stage (seed)African-led  startups working towards:

  1. universal access to energy (household energy to heat, light and cook; energy for business and large communities);
  2. sustainable mobility and  transportation (clean and safe transportation in rural areas and last mile transportation);
  3. or sustainable agriculture value chains ( innovations that improve access to knowledge, finance, markets or knowledge for smallholder farmers).
