In order to receive the Original WIDU Grant or Corona Business Grant, certain requirements must be fulfilled. Please find below information on documents that are required throughout the funding process.
To participate in WIDU.africa, two partners consisting of a diaspora donor in Europe and an Africa-based entrepreneur need to team up and start the application process.
Diaspora donors in Europe must have a registered address in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden or Switzerland, and be aged 18 or older, with a valid ID document, such as a European passport or a passport from a participating African country plus residence permit in a participating European country.
Africa-based entrepreneurs must be age 18 or older and have a new or existing micro or small business based in a participating African country, with maximum 20 employees. The entrepreneur is expected to use the platform him/herself and therefore requires literacy in French or English as well as basic digital and business skills.
