Speed Networking
Activity Description

The Startup Huddle format is consistent in each location: at a consistent meeting place, one or two early-stage startup founders give a six-minute presentation about their company to a diverse audience from their local community. Each presentation is followed by a 20-minute question and answer session where the community provides ideas, connections, and feedback for the entrepreneur.

During this event, we will have 3 presentations from Namibia. The team of FMD free Dairy Solutions will present their innovation in AI that supports dairy farmers. Secondly, we have a team that will present their solution on tomato sauce production; lastly from Namibia, the team presenting their chicken hatching innovation in AI. 

from there we will move on to a young woman from Zambia who buys from small farmers' package it, and sells cashew nuts and other by-products to support her ability to live a good life as an entrepreneur.
