We are at a point in time where sustainability challenges facing Africa and the rest of the world are growing and becoming more and more significant. At the same time, innovation and technology are making it possible to find fitting solutions to these challenges. As a global company, we want to continue to brew beer and build brands that will bring people together for 100+ years to come. In order to achieve this goal, we cannot do it alone.

At AB InBev, we have globally launched our 2025 Sustainability Goals, which we hope, will help drive us and like-minded people to implement a positive change. We look to the top minds in Africa, in particular to come together to unearth and nurture innovative solutions to our continent’s most pressing challenges.

The minds behind the best solutions could find themselves winning a trip to Africa’s very own Sillicon Savannah in Nairobi Kenya, as well as possibly competing in the global stage at our New York Accelerator.
