Applications open for Irish Tech Challenge South Africa worth EUR10,000

The Embassy of Ireland is very excited to be launching the Tech Challenge South Africa worth EUR10,000 this year in partnership with the South African Department of Science and Innovation and the Technology and Innovation Agency.

All across South Africa, there is enormous entrepreneurial potential and creativity, particularly in the tech space. That creativity is particularly vibrant among young entrepreneurs and women entrepreneurs.

Meanwhile, Ireland has become a global tech hub and the location of choice for most of the world’s largest computer and software companies, and is now the second largest exporter of computer and IT services globally.

We want, therefore, through the Tech Challenge, to provide a platform for cooperation and sharing of expertise between the South African and Irish tech ecosystems for mutual benefit. The Tech Challenge is an important part of the Embassy of Ireland’s work in South Africa to support inclusive economic growth and to foster trade and economic relations between our two countries. So if you are a tech entrepreneur in South Africa who meets the eligibility criteria, and want to avail of excellent opportunities to grow your business, develop your network and be a bridge between Ireland and South Africa’s tech ecosystems, make sure to send in your application

says H.E. Fionnuala Gilsenan, Ambassador of Ireland to South Africa.

They particularly encourage tech businesses led by women, young people, and people from communities of historical disadvantage to apply.
