The Innovate Kenya Challenge is looking to identify and support innovative solutions to issues within the fields of Health, Energy, Education, Agriculture, Transportation, Telecommunications, Civic Media, and Engineering in Kenya.
The innovation challenge will encourage and help Kenyan students create prototypes of their solutions while providing them with capital, mentorship and other resources during the process.
We are not only interested in solutions to big problems. Important change can happen on a small scale, and even the biggest projects begin with small steps. The most important change a country can achieve—something the Innovate Kenya project looks to inspire—is towards a creative and innovative mentality. With the help of our academic partner organizations such as MIT and Harvard, Innovate Kenya is about doing just that.
