After 7 great years, African Innovation Prize has seen our impact reached, through the mainstreaming of business plan competitions across Africa. After supporting more than 60 business idea winners and 20 business plan winners, AIP has helped create more than 125 jobs across Rwanda, Burundi, and Tanzania.

We are officially closing our doors in September 2017, and thank the partners, volunteers, staff, funders, and most importantly, the student entrepreneurs who have worked with us over the years. We are inspired by each of you.
