If you are a startup solving for a peculiar problem, you should apply to the 1776 Challenge Cup, a worldwide startups’ tournament sponsored by the US-based incubator, 1776.

The competition is open to the most promising, world changing ideas where participants can win up to $175,000 in cash prizes and get exposed to over $1,000,000 in potential investment.

Participants advance through two stages; the local events, and regional events, before participating at the global finals that will hold June 2016 in Washington D.C.

Local events in Africa are open for startups in Kampala, Casablanca, Nairobi, Pretoria and Zimbabwe, and winning startups from the local events will advance to the regional finals that will hold in Nairobi next February.
