Next Einstein Forum: Meet the Top 25 Innovators To Compete at its Global Gathering in Nairobi

Today, the Next Einstein Forum (NEF) announces the 25 finalists for its Challenge of Invention to Innovation (Ci2i) competition in five categories to be held on 10-11 March 2020 in the NEF Innovation Salon.

"The third cohort of Ci2i finalists, selected from 260 applications, are ambitious African innovators developing scalable solutions to local challenges in agriculture, integration and logistics, personalized and precision health, power and energy. They will pitch for a $25,000 prize in each category but also be connected to investors in a one-of-a-kind 'Sciencepreneur Investor Meetup', said Nathalie Munyampenda, Managing Director of the Next Einstein Forum.

The 25 finalists selected, with the support of Co-creation Hub, include the creators of an overweight and obesity tracking database, portable solar-powered solution against post-harvest milk losses, ophthalmic devices emerging as the world's first definitive treatment of glaucoma, an online blood bank connecting hospitals, and two innovations aiming to ease the burden of doing business in Africa: a cryptocurrency and industrial IoT solution.

The finalists will be treated to a lab-style bootcamp, held before the NEF Global Gathering 2020 in Nairobi starting on 10th March. The bootcamp will involve pitch preparation and investment readiness sessions. At the end of the bootcamp, the young sciencepreneurs will gain knowledge of how to create and deliver value through their solutions as well as understanding funding options & valuations.

"For the last six years we have been working with young African innovators whose disruptive and transformative innovations in health, agriculture and fintech are having a wider impact for African citizens. We are once again honored to give these 25 brilliant Sciencepreneurs, the NEF platform to catapult from and to connect them with the investors they need to scale impact," said Ms. Munyampenda.

Finalists were selected by reviewing potential for impact, technological readiness and the potential for commercialization. Winners will be announced on 13th March 2020.

  2. I AM HERE TO TESTIFY ON HOW MY HERPES VIRUS WAS CURED BY DR muhammedu
    I'm Johnson nourish from Texas USA. I had been in a relationship with a guy and we had unprotected sex for the first time and within a day i got a big bump on the crease of my thigh and vagina. after a few days it began to hurt more and more. I told him to take a picture of it for me, and it looked like open sores, like bugs were biting off my skin or something. So i went to the ER and they said genital herpes. I was soooo depressed. my boyfriend and i cried. he cried for me, but he had no idea he had it too. next day, same thing happens to him. at this point, we think i gave it to him because I was the first one to show the symptoms. The next phase I went through was depression. At this point, all I did was sleep and cry. I felt like my life was over. I knew I could never get married, I felt dirty, and worthless. I was depressed for about two months. I fought thoughts of suicide and it was a hassle to even carry out my daily tasks. So I started to wonder if there would be a remedy to this disease, which led me to going to visiting many hospitals, and nothing good came out from it, until I read a person’s testimony online that said that they were cured with the help of Dr muhammedu Spell, of this disease that the world deems incurable and tears rolled down my face. That persons testimony sparked a hope in me that led me to contact Dr muhammedu. So he assured us that we are going to be alright, after meeting up with the necessary requirements, he sent us a parcel and gave us instruction guide on how to use it, which we did, after 7 days of using the medication, the herpes was totally cured. So I and my boyfriend went and got tested for every STD in the book and every single test came back NEGATIVE, we also went back to the hospital, and it was confirmed NEGATIVE. I am posting my testimony to help someone out there suffering from this disease. Do not hesitate to contact Dr muhammedu via e-mail; DRmuhammedu@Gmail.com or call him or whatsapp on +2348162046101
