Hackathon participants take on global health and innovation

In August 2016, nearly 150 social entrepreneurs participated in Africa’s first-ever Hackathon at the Impact Hub Accra in Accra, Ghana. Health Hack Accra brought together biomedical engineers, scientists, programmers and business students from various parts of West Africa to solve to some of the continent’s toughest health challenges, such as maternal and reproductive health, access to healthcare, non-communicable disease, and infectious disease. Participants were divided into 29 teams and tasked with creating innovative solutions to these pressing problems. The top three teams, in addition to receiving monetary prizes, also won access to six months of incubation in our Entrepreneurial Development Space at Impact Hub Accra, where they could establish and grow their award-winning ideas in an environment supported by our company. And one of the top three finalists is currently participating in the our Accelerator program – a program designed to expedite the idea-to-market process as rapidly
and resourcefully as possible.
