Every couple of months, Ethiopian Innovator will feature monthly profiles of entrepreneurs undertaking innovative business activities that have the potential to make significant social impact as they scale up their operations.
Some of these innovations may already be taking place in
other countries. In our showcase section, besides homegrown innovations, we
are recognizing those entrepreneurs that are replicating innovations from other
countries. There is much we can learn from other countries, and we want to
encourage replicating/ building on best practice.
Most of the entrepreneurs profiled every month have already
been operating at least a year and have developed products that they have
introduced to the market. A few have their product developed but have not
entered the market. The main challenge they all face is access to finance to
scale up their operations and make impact.
