OSVP: The Orange Social Venture Prize in Africa and the Middle East (OSVP) has become a reference and has passed the 10-year mark by entering its 11th edition. Every year, it rewards the best technological projects with a positive impact in Africa and the Middle East. The competition is organized in two stages: first a national competition in 17 countries; then an international jury selects the winners of the Grand Prix.
