STARTUPPER of the Year 2016 #Challenge @TotalSAfrica #SouthAfrica

Hi Guys,

In South Africa Total South Africa launched the Challenge "Startupper of the year" to find ideas that can bring change to not only the individual but also to the society as a whole. Initiated by the Total Group in 34 African countries simultaneously, this contest aims at identifying, rewarding and accompanying the best projects in enterprise creation or development (less than 2-year old) in South Africa. The winning projects will be granted the Startupper of the year 2016 by Total title, enroll in business coaching and a chance to win a share of R1 200,000 worth of prize money.

This call for projects is free and open to any South African citizen, maximum 35-year old. The application process will start on 1st November 2015 (8.00 AM GMT) and is directly available on the website: Candidates will be able to apply until 31st January 2016 (11.00 PM GMT).

A jury of professionals will pre-select up to ten of the best projects in South Africa based on the following criteria: how innovative, original, daring the project is, its development potential and its capacity to improve the living conditions of the populations.

The finalists’ list will be published on the website of the contest, following the final selection phase, which will end by March 15th. After candidates’ defense, the jury will choose the best projects - three maximum – and the results will be announced during the awards ceremony. The whole contest rules are freely available on line on the dedicated website (
