Welcome to TECH4Transition!

Entrepreneurship plays a key role in the context of the 2030 Agenda and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Entrepreneurship enables the development of functional infrastructure, fosters inclusive and sustainable economic development, and is a proven contributor to progressive industrialisation and the promotion of innovation.

This is exactly where TECH4Transition comes in: it supports the African start-up ecosystem through concrete actions in the areas of awareness raising, capacity building and development, and knowledge and technology transfer.
