Solve Namibia was founded in 2015 in Windhoek, Namibia. This startup is focused on cost-effective water conservation solutions for unprivileged communities in Namibia and Africa. Their goal is to improve access to clean drinking water, reduce costs of water and give better access to sanitation in general.
They decided to apply for the Slush GIA 2018 program because they would like to attract investments in Namibia to set up local manufacturing. More importantly they would like to meet and collaborate with like-minded water industry startups and specialists, so that they can look at more cost-effective water innovations and solutions.
Cancer Dojo was founded in 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa. This startup is based on an app that helps patients suffering from cancer to be more resilient to the negative effects of the disease.
