Applications for the 2021 Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation are now open and you’ve got the chance to apply for it.

The Nigerian finalists for the 2020 Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation are Chukwunonso Arinze – Founder of KAOSHI, Aisha Raheem – Founder of Farmz2u, and Victor Boyle-Komolafe – Founder of Garbage In Value Out (Givo), with more Nigerians making the shortlist in 2019, and even more in 2018.
The prize awards crucial commercialization support to ambitious African innovators who are developing scalable engineering solutions to local challenges, and demonstrating the importance of engineering as an enabler of improved quality of life and economic development.
