The African Union Development Agency Call for MSME-led Digital Solutions

The African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) in collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), announces this Call for Digital Solutions for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

This call is part of an MSME support programme within the Economic Integration division of AUDA-NEPAD supported by the GIZ Programme Green Infrastructure Corridor for Intra-Africa Trade (PIDA).

The programme is part of AUDA-NEPAD’s umbrella programme 100,000 MSMEs Initiative.

  • This Call for Digital Solutions is looking for MSMEs that provide digital solutions which support trade and/or green infrastructure.

    Through this call, we are looking to provide business development support to MSMEs in the green infrastructure and trade sectors.

  • If your business is looking for support to launch or scale a digital solution for green infrastructure and/or trade, please consider applying.


    This is not financial support. AUDA-NEPAD will not provide any direct funding to the successful applicants.

    The main purpose of this support programme is to empower MSMEs by helping them develop sustainable businesses.

    As such, we do not give funding directly but rather assist with the preparation of robust business plans, financial models and pitch decks that demonstrate the business case and are aligned to what investors look for.

    We focus on helping MSMEs develop a more holistic
    view of their business’s financial trajectory and to understand how to mobilise funding themselves and achieve their business outcomes.

    Digital technologies drive innovation, economic growth and job creation across a multiplicity of economic sectors, and foster increased African interconnectivity.

    Hence, this call for solutions focuses on African business offering digital/tech-based solutions to their customers.

    AUDA-NEPAD is looking to select 10 MSMEs to receive tailored technical assistance.

    Once selected, MSMEs will work closely with our team to design and deliver a customised technical assistance programme which will be carried out in 2023 to support your company’s specific growth needs across three key areas:
