The second round of the GSMA Ecosystem Accelerator Innovation Fund is now open for applications. The Fund provides selected start-ups in Africa and Asia Pacific with grant funding, technical assistance, and the opportunity to partner with mobile operators in their markets to help scale their products and services into sustainable businesses with positive socio-economic impact.
The deadline is 16 July but they advise early application since selection to the programme is highly competitive. For the second round, the Fund will be supporting start-ups operating in the Sharing Economy, and/or developing services for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Interested start-ups can check their eligibility and apply here: gsma.com/eainnovationfund
