Africa Forum for Clean Energy Financing, WAFCEF, invites West Africa’s entrepreneurs,
start-ups and existing companies with promising clean energy projects
(renewable energy resources and energy efficiency) to participate in a business
plan competition and stand a chance to receive an initial capital investment in
excess of $1,000,000 from Investors. Shortlisted projects will attend a
project development and financing workshop and will receive free individual
professional mentoring to further develop their business plans, develop
convincing investment pitches, and formulate a commercially, financially,
socially and environmentally viable growth strategy that in turn will
significantly enhance the possibility of obtaining financing. During the final
event that will take place next year, up to ten winners will present their
business plans to investors, industry specialists and business executives
interested in funding clean energy. These private sector judges select the top
three projects to receive West African Clean Energy Financing awards.
to the Business Plan Competition Awards, all Investment Forum participants will
be invited to attend a one-day Dialogue on Renewable Energy and Energy
Efficiency which will provide an opportunity for dialogue with policymakers on
policies, regulations and laws and investment in clean energy in West Africa.
Submissions are due December 12.
The submission of Project Proposal and Excel Project
Data Sheet must be made by Midnight (Greenwich Meridian Time) December 12 to firstname.lastname@example.org
