The second Leap2 Innovation Challenge is steadily progressing. This stage is devoted to the Crowdfunding campaign, which was launched on January 15th and will continue until February 23rd. During this online campaign to raise funds, all 11 innovation projects try to meet target amounts to ultimately reach their full desired goal amount. The Leap2 organization continuously encourages the teams to keep on track by giving weekly tips and tricks on how to keep the momentum of their campaign alive.
Crowdfunding allows innovation teams to test their ideas and solutions on the market. Once they meet their crowdfunding goals, they will receive matching funding from Close the Gap.
The Crowdfunding period will end with a pitch day on February 23rd, where teams will have the final opportunity to give their campaign a boost. Through crowdfunding and coaching, the Kenyan entrepreneurs expand their network and reach potential investors for their digital solutions for societal issues.
