Africa Megacity Prize

$1M Africa Megacity Prize

We're backing the next generation of urban startups
for emerging cities and their slums

 
 

How can urban startups help transform the future of cities across Africa?

 

Utopia is launching a $1M Africa Megacity Prize to back 10 urban startups in emergent cities across Africa.

We’re awarding $100,000 to each of the 10 early stage urban startups for an equity stake.

 
 

Will this solution make the city better for the many, not just the few?

This is the central question we’re considering for each urban startup.
