VivaTech announces the 3 winners of AfricaTech Awards 2022




VivaTech has announced the winners of AfricaTech Awards. The inaugural event was co-organised with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank, as a pan-African initiative aimed at recognising and supporting the most innovative startups on the continent.

VivaTech rewarded three high-potential startups that aim to promote positive innovation and generate development impact in three main sectors: climate tech, health tech and fintech.

Among the three winners is WEEE Centre (in the Climate Tech category), a Kenya-based organisation which provides e-waste management services by conducting safe and environmentally friendly operations that protect the environment and human health.

The awards were supported by Proparco and sponsored by Cassava Technologies, New Energy Nexus, Orange and Deloitte Africa.

The winners in each category are:

  • Climate Tech: WEEE Centre provides e-waste management services by conducting safe and environmentally friendly operations that protect the environment and human health.
  • Health Tech: Chefaa is a GPS-enabled pharmacy delivery platform aimed at helping chronic patients order, schedule and refill their prescriptions and all their pharmacy needs, and to manage the tracking of their treatment, regardless of their location and income.
  • Fintech: Click2Sure has built a cloud-based, modular and scalable insurance SaaS that enables insurance companies to deliver omnichannel distribution, reduce administrative costs and make better decisions through real-time reporting and insights.
