The day to day activity of the Youth Innovation Challenge

 

The Youth Innovation Challenge is an annual programme of Innovate Durban, held in partnership with various organisations. The purpose of the Innovation Challenge is to create a platform for innovation to thrive in eThekwini by empowering the citizens – particularly the youth – to become innovative in their communities and in business.

 

In 2019 we are focusing on the intended Integrated Rapid Transport Network led by the eThekwini Transport Authority and GO! Durban. The objective of Youth Innovation Challenge this year is to give the youth of Durban and surrounding areas an opportunity and platform to come up with practical innovative solutions to potential problems and find compelling value propositions for new businesses surrounding the project.

 

To aid participants in developing their solutions, a number of different workshops are run over a week long solution development process, which include a number of different topics, such as Design Thinking, Technical Solution Development, Business Plan Development and pitching training.
