Join BeChangeMaker Africa 2022 final pitch on 29 November
The top five teams competing for the prizes include NABO Innovations from Namibia who are developing a ventilation system to protect miners.
The final pitch event for BeChangeMaker Africa 2022, our annual social entrepreneurship programme, is on 29 November. Bringing creative solutions to social issues, the five teams in the final have received three months of virtual entrepreneurship training and mentorship. Now they will present their ideas to an expert panel who will decide the winner of this year’s programme.
Presented by the African Union and the HP Foundation, this is the third edition of BeChangeMaker Africa. The programme is also supported by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and the International Labour Organization (ILO). Thirty teams from across the continent were selected for the programme in May.
From helping artisans sell their products to creating toys that foster emotional learning to closing the digital divide, the success of the top teams can contribute to Agenda 2063 – Africa’s strategic blueprint – and to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The teams taking part in the final are:
- Bechewata Educational Toys - Ethiopia
- MT Freelance - Ethiopia
- The Lotus Foundation (Smart Solution) - Ghana
- EMaâlem - Morocco
- NABO Innovations - Namibia
- Amined - Morocco (the wild card team!)
