Startups that demonstrate innovations, scalability and high impact from around the world are encouraged to apply for a chance of winning $64,800 (GB£ 50,000) grant funding.

the fund to the winning startups. It goes further to help the startups develop and grow their operations. They offer tools and connections for the startups to thrive on top of the grant funding. The organization operates on the mantra that far too many entrepreneurs fall off their tracks merely because they lacked supports systems like funds, networks, and tools to scale up.

The competition is open to all startups from around the world, and across different stages of development; from just ideas to up-and-running startups. As long as the given startup convince the judges that they are worth the grant up for grabs. That can only happen if the startup has a promising product or idea that can be quickly scalable and profitable.

Although
