During the months of March, April and May 2018, Close the Gap is organising the third Leap2 Innovation Challenge in Uganda, together with GoodUp and Women in Technology Uganda (WITU). Leap2 is our platform to promote and support entrepreneurs that are creating digital solutions for societal challenges in emerging and developing countries.

From a pool of many strong applicants, Leap² selected 9 successful innovations to participate in the innovation challenge, with a focus on tech women in Uganda.

After the announcement of the selected innovations and a crowdfunding training in the beginning of April, the crowdfunding campaign was kicked off on Wednesday 18th April, together with Inge Knapen, Close the Gap’s Operation Director. The campaign will last a month and participants will also receive a pitch training. On 18th May, innovations will pitch their ideas on the final campaign day. On that day, the winner of this third challenge for tech women will be announced as well. Stay tuned for more updates!
