Action Entries 2023

Enactus teams were invited to apply with their projects for this year’s challenge.
Action Entry submissions were due by 28 February 2023 at 23:59 GMT. You may reach out to with any questions.

A copy of the Action with Africa Agreement and the Evaluation Criterion were provided before the submission deadline.


Please submit an Action Entry by 28 February 2023 by filling in the Action Entry Form. Please make sure to carefully review the Action with Africa Agreement and the Evaluation Criterion.

Yes, all teams with new or existing projects are invited to join the Action with Africa Challenge. However, if you just started a new project, please keep in mind that it is required to have realized the proof of concept by 16 May 2023 when submitting the first progress report.

No, unfortunately. The Action with Africa program addresses Enactus projects and it is therefore not possible for individuals or non-Enactus businesses to participate.

Projects that have reached the TOP 8 cannot participate again. All other teams and projects are welcome to apply another time.

For the avoidance of doubt: teams that had a project amongst the TOP 8 are allowed to apply again with a different project than the shortlisted one.

The Action with Africa program is an Africa-focused initiative that aims at creating jobs and local SDG impact. To ensure that the project funding is used in African countries, we ask you to explain how you realize your project locally from outside Africa and who supports you with this as a local partner.

No. If you want to change the title after having submitted the Action Entry, please contact and request approval for the change. Projects which submit under a different title than the one initially registered may be excluded from the Challenge.

No, it is only required that the university team presents a project at the National Competition. It does not need to be the project participating in the Action with Africa Challenge.

Teams have the chance to win their share of EUR 100,000 awarded as project funding:

RankingProject Funding (EUR)
4 – 65,000
