The national phase of the Orange Social Venture Prize Africa & Middle East 2018 is about to conclude. In each participating country, the members of the national evaluation committee select the finalists, ten on average. Then, a national jury, drawn from a variery of backgrounds, gather to study the projects. Project owners usually get a chance to pitch their project directly in front of the jury. In the end, the jury delivers three winners.
National managers of the contest get in touch with all finalists and give them the information required to prepare for a pitch session.
We will know the identity of the three winners from each country on or after 13 September 2018. The full list of the winners will be available on Entrepreneur Club. Later, the international phase of the contest will start, including a public vote.
