Kijenzi is creating a turnkey 3D printing solution for low resources settings. Their computer-less, CAD-less printer systems includes libraries of appropriate designs that are being used to enable local entrepreneurs to supply rural health care networks with replacement parts, medical devices, anatomical models, and occupational therapy devices.
Green Briq makes fuel briquettes from invasive plan species. Working first with hyacinth plants that choke off shipping and fishing in East Africa and elsewhere, they are creating a sustainable, lower smoke, cheaper alternative to wood fires and charcoal that produced locally.
Matibabu is co-developing a quick and non-invasive malaria test device that rural health care workers can carry around and re-use on patients without worrying about blood borne contamination. The device will also allow the health care community to better understand how malaria is being contracted in a region.
Inakua is developing small scale aquaponics systems that free subsistence farmers from the fluctuations caused by climate changes. Their low-cost system includes appropriate education and starting materials that will free farmers from risk and time of traditional farming methods.
Produce Solutions is connecting developing world farmers and markets through transportation alternatives, enabling farmers and everyone in the distribution chain to better understand the value of their crops. This knowledge will eliminate the incredibly high post-harvest loss that occurs when farmers try to store their produce and wait for the right buyer.
Biocynth makes bioplastics from invasive plant species, trying to increase the amount of quickly biodegradable plastics that are used in developing communities. Working with those who suffer the ill effects of these plants, they can at once incentivize the removal of these species and create a more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastics.
