Women entrepreneurs from all over Africa (and abroad) once again have the opportunity to showcase their startups to the world and stand the chance to receive financial backing in the second edition of the She Leads Africa pitch competition.

Entrepreneurs running startups less than three years old, with at least one woman between the ages of 18 and 35 as a founding member that are focused on the African market are eligible to apply.

Up for grabs is a $15 000 (around R180 000) cash prize.

Last year, Cherae Robinson, founder and CEO of Tastemakers Africa walked away with the grand prize.

She Leads Africa co-founders will host a Google Hangout on the 22nd May to answer any questions you may have on putting together a successful application. You can RSVP for the Hangout on Putting Together A Great Pitch Application here.

Applications close on 30th June and can be submitted via a form along with a one-minute video about your startup and a 10-15 slide pitch deck on the She Leads Africa website.

All applicants will be notified of their application status by the 2oth July 2015.
