INNOVATOR SHOWCASE – MONTHLY INNOVATOR PROFILES

 
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.
