InventAfrika is a hub where challenges and innovation converge to create solutions for a better world. We basically promote collaborative work across disciplines, race and beyond traditional boundaries to provide answers to daunting, broad and complex societal challenges in Africa.

In order to Re-Invent Africa, there is the need to engage young and vibrant minds across disciplines and traditional boundaries. Aside engaging 30 engineering students annually, thousands of students will be able to use our resources to promote their personal work across the continent.

If you have an idea that can transform your community, come register and engage with us so we can incubate and transform that idea to reality. Five most innovative marketable ideas will receive further incubation by Purdue Foundry and other partners abroad with two matched with possible investors.
