Falling Walls Lab gives emerging bright minds a unique chance to become the next big success story in innovation. It is running in 60 countries worldwide & Zimbabwe has now been added to that list as promised by the organization last year. A call for applications is now open:

The founder of Falling Walls Lab Zimbabwe is Emmie Chiyindiko, who is currently a Ph.D. candidate, an award-winning science communicator, and an event facilitator. She was herself a participator & winner in the Falling Walls Lab South Africa and now she has been upgraded to the founder of Zimbabwe's very first Falling Walls Lab.

Bringing Falling Walls Lab to Zimbabwe was a matter of necessity. Zimbabweans are naturally talented people and for an idea to grow to fruition, it should be shared and amplified by the right people. Besides the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cash prizes, 10/15 finalists get to pitch to top management from our local partner companies including NGOs, Agriculture, Finance, start-up incubators, etc.
The first prize also includes a free ticket to the global finale in Berlin Germany and the week-long Berlin Science Summit. The Summit is attended by world movers, leaders in technology, investors, and finalists from across the globe.
Even if you don’t win, joining the Falling Walls Lab community guarantees an opportunity to connect youth to their role models, peers, resources, technologies, skills, and economic opportunities. We assure better access to capital and markets; skills development, and sustained investment in training; apprenticeship, and education through our partnerships.
