The Africa Energy Marketplace has been set-up as a collaborative effort between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Impact Hub network in Africa, to support two solar energy entrepreneurs in an incubation program.

Impact Hub Johannesburg’s four-month incubation program aims to deliver a new approach to support early stage solar ventures that are pre-revenue generation, but are highly ambitious to create change in the African energy market through widely accessible and environmental friendly energy offerings. Through its design and implementation, the program will run to fit the local energy ecosystem, and will address environmental conservation issues associated with energy developments on the continent.

If you are an entrepreneur with a business idea or initiative focused on transforming the African energy sector, we want you to apply!

To apply, send a one page document that address the following:

  • A brief background of your business
  • How your business addresses challenges faced by Africans
  • Why you want to be a part of the program
  • What you hope to gain from the program
