The Orange Social Venture Prize 2017 will first select and reward projects on a country basis: Egyptian project vs Egyptian project, Botswana project vs Botswana project, etc. We have designed a complex evaluation process to ensure that the best projects make it in front of the jury for the final choice. However, we are only people and, with almost twelve hundred applications, we need all the help we can get. This is when you can make a difference. Anybody with a valid email address can vote once a day for their favourite projects – and there are seven days left!
The national voting phase ends on the 17th of July. After that point, we will compare the number of votes (we will check the logs and can remove part or all of the votes if we suspect cheating). The project with the most votes will get an interview with his country’s contest jury.
The purpose of this vote is also to entice entrepreneurs to spread the word about what they are doing, both to inspire others and also to draw attention to their products, services and ambitions.
(Have no worry, projects with no or few votes can still make it in front of the jury on the basis of their quality.)
To vote, find the projects of your country:
– Burkina Faso
– Central African Republic
– Côte d’Ivoire
– Democratic Republic of the Congo
– Guinea Bissau
