On the 20.01.2018 the „Swedish Winter challenge: partnership for growth“ took place at the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship. It was a great chance for the umnandi team to learn more about Africa and connect with local entrepreneurs all around the continent.
The event was mainly focused on how Africa’s future can be shaped considering the fast-growing market and the opportunities that come with it. The day started with a hackathon around solar energy and after the lunch breaks, pitches from Chalmers Alumnies and African entrepreneurs took place, where we were able to get the word out about umnandi and received amazing feedback. This proved to us that we are on the right track with our content, meaning that education about entrepreneurship is something that is both needed and appreciated.
Furthermore, the umnandi team also had the pleasure to connect with several interesting entrepreneurs who were very interested in a further collaboration. This might give us the opportunity to expand our work across the South African borders in the future.
