At Innovate, with our flagship product – The M-Voucher we are solving a real problem in our society. Being able to eliminate cash and using mobile payments for buying subsidies is a clear way of solving a real problem. We use simple technology tools which when combined give a full solution that is usable by many organizations.
Each award came with a cash prize of 3000 USD, and we shall use this to continue perfecting our product. A huge thank you to MTN for organizing a successful event.
