The Orange Social Venture Prize national votes start on Monday 4 June

Once again this year a record number of African entrepreneurs and students have submitted an entry to the Orange Social Venture Prize Africa & Middle East. Congratulations to all!

The national voting phase starts on Monday the 4th of June. The role of this vote is to help us choose a worthy contestant for the national awards: the winner of this vote gets to pitch his or her project to the jury alongside the finalists selected through internal reviews by Orange. Please note that, prior to the validation of the vote tally, each individual vote is thoroughly checked.

The rules of the vote:
– you can vote for any project (from your country or any other one);
– though no more than once per day for any given project;
– on the other hand, you can vote for any number of different projects each day.

We suggest you activate your community – friends, family, colleagues, etc. – around your project. The voting phase should help all projects acquire some reputation and attract interest, not only the winner.
