Innovate Salone 2019 Application Form
Global Minimum Inc. (GMin) is a non-profit organization that catalyzes a culture of innovation through hands-on learning experiences, creative problem-solving, and leadership skills among youth. The Innovate Salone program inspires young people (aged 13-20 years) to use collaborative approaches to create and implement their own solutions to pressing problems in their communities. Our vision is to expand a culture of innovation and self-efficacy that can help drive economic, social and human development in Sierra Leone.


Secondary school students and recent graduates are encouraged to work in teams of 3-4 to identify problems in their communities and create solutions to solving those problems. Applicants start by exploring the situation that is causing them to act and then provide details for how their idea or project will be developed and why they are well suited to accomplish the project. Each team will be assessed based on their project proposal and how well they explain their idea and the approach they take to solving the problem.

Up to 10 teams will be selected by a panel of judges and provided with up to USD. $200 project funding to develop a prototype of a solution for your well-defined problem. Finalist teams will be invited for a fully-funded 3-day Innovation Camp on 13th - 15th December 2019. The camp will include leadership training, design thinking workshops, field trip, and mentorship.
Please note: You do NOT need to have a complete project to apply for Innovate Salone. We accept ideas in this application process.
