Content: Join our three-hour innovation competition with exciting keynote-speakers from Ambitious Africa and StartUp School. You will work in small teams creating and validating an idea of exporting entrepreneurial education to Africa. All teams will present their idea, the resources needed for execution, and a rough project plan. The winning team will get a prize, but the real reward is yet to come!

  • has always wanted to be a part of Slush or some other world-changing success story, but you haven’t found your mission yet.
