The Program

Secondary school youth and recent high school graduates are encouraged to work in teams of 2 - 3 for the Innovate Kenya program. Up to 12 teams will be selected by an acclaimed panel of international and local judges for a fully-funded 1 week Innovation Camp in August 2017. The camp will include leadership clinics, design thinking workshops, field-trips, mentorship and up to Ksh. 50,000 project funding to produce a prototype of a solution for a well-defined local problem.

Interested applicants need to provide details of how the prototype(project) will be developed and why they are well suited to accomplish the project.
