About us

The Global Startup Awards (GSA) kicked off in the Nordics in 2012 and due to its success in the first season expanded to other regions.  The GSA Competition is now introduced in Africa and the Central Africa Startup Awards will shine a spotlight on startups across each country.

Our mission is to:

  • Connect, support and celebrate founders of technology and innovation
  • Form a global entrepreneurial network
  • Create an excellent environment for partnership and investment opportunities, and commercial exchange
