The AECF runs competitions targeting specific economic sectors (including agribusiness, renewable energy, resilience and rural financial services), specific countries in Africa, or development corridors involving several countries. Each competition typically can have more than one Funding Round for additional applications depending on donor support. The amount of funding that the AECF can award to a single business is between US$ 250,000 and US$ 1.5m, although this amount may vary depending on the competition. Every business entering the competitions must meet specific eligibility criteria.
