OSVP


The Orange Social Venture Prize in Africa and the Middle East

Having become a benchmark contest, the Orange Social Venture Prize in Africa and the Middle East (POESAM) is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Every year, it rewards the best technological projects with a positive impact in Africa and the Middle East.

The competition is organised in two stages: first a national competition in 17 countries; then an international jury chooses the Grand Prix winners. To mark its 10th anniversary, Orange will reward even more start-ups, with the launch of the international women’s prize worth €20,000 and the addition of a “special prize” worth €10,000 specific to this edition. A total of 5 prizes will therefore be awarded by the international Grand Prix jury.

In addition to an award of up to €25,000, the Grand Prix winners benefit from personalised support from Orange experts, and high media coverage of their project on the continent and beyond.
