This one-day young entrepreneurs’ workshop “Innovations for Public Health” at the Nairobi Innovation Week (Tue 6th March 2018) will bring together students from different disciplines to innovate around a real-life business case. You will get an opportunity to learn about menstrual hygiene management as a public health issue, as well as to create and discuss business models which result in public health impact and promote sustainable innovation. You will be challenged in seeing menstrual hygiene through different lenses; social and business-wise. Students - both men and women – will be active drivers of this initiative and propose their own ideas in social marketing, distribution channels, supporting technological innovations and apps, public campaigns and advocacy.

The workshop is co-organized by Lune Group Ltd (Lunette), PATH and Embassy of Finland in Kenya. PATH’s experts on public health and market dynamics facilitate the event for about 30 students from different disciplines and faculties from University of Nairobi. Students need to apply in advance and will be selected based on motivation and background. Participants will at the end of the workshop receive product gifts and a certificate of participation. Lune Group considers funding the best ideas presented during the workshop.

We will inform all applicants of the outcome by mid-February!
