Events and Meetups

Innovator and Community meetup

Through this program, the innovators, organizations and individuals come together to discuss and develop an understanding of community challenges in Agriculture, Health, Education, Environment and Climatic change that need innovative solutions. The innovators propose solutions and test them with organizations/individuals. Four think tanks are organized every year before the start of every internship program in order to generate ideas TO be developed by internees. This program creates an opportunity for innovators to work and test innovations with the real consumers.

For the organizations willing to partner with us on this program and work with innovators to develop tailor made technology solutions, sign up now; Email:empoweryouthintechnology@gmail.com
