Starting in 2017, the Ken Saro-Wiwa Foundation will present the Ken Junior Award for Innovation to four start-up technology companies in Port Harcourt.
The Ken Junior Award recognises and seeks to overcome the barriers to economic development and innovation in Port Harcourt, namely access to electricity, internet connection, mentoring and networking. We believe these are more valuable than any cash prize.
Each of the awardees will win six months:
Self-contained office space at the Ken Saro-Wiwa Centre
High-speed internet connection
Access event space for holding workshops and trainings
Business support and trainings
Mentorship from industry experts
Winners will be picked based on the following criteria:
An innovative solution to an identified social, economic or environmental problem that has a technological element
A sustainable and scalable businesses model
A team with passion, experience and complementary skills
