In Africa as elsewhere, many young people aspire to start their own business and build a brighter future, which is why we’ve created the "Startupper of the year by Total" challenge. Ideas deserve support, especially great ones. And promising ideas deserve a helping hand.

Google, Facebook, Daily Motion, Twitter, Deezer, Airbnb and other leading names in the 2.0 economy all started as the brainchild of inspired young people. There’s no shortage of startuppers in Africa — iCow1, Afate 3D Printer2, CardioPad3, Obami4, Sense Ebola Follow up5 and M-Iouma6 are already shaking up the continent.
