Project Report | Dec 12, 2022
2022 NBCC Finals

By Prince Makawa Abudu | Co-founder/COO Emergination Africa

This year’s program impacted nearly 50 000 learners from across Zimbabwe. The NBCC program successfully onboarded 140 High schools from across all the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe. The program was deliberate in inclusivity with a gender parity of, 10 girls’, 15 boys’ and 115 mixed gender schools. Attention was also given to bring socio-economic status with inclusion, as such 87 government schools, 45 mission schools and 8 private schools participated in the competition. The target profile of beneficiaries within each of the aforementioned provinces were, High school learners between the ages of 16 and 18 both male and female. This was done to create and allow for interdisciplinary action among the students 

The largest portion of teachers were those teaching Commercial subjects Studies, however it was open to all teachers that teach the various subjects that fall within the Zimbabwean Curriculum.

The program came to a climatic end with the top 30 teams presenting at the Harare NBCC Finals in front of a high-level panel of investors. The national finals produced 5 teams which were selected by the panel of investors to transition into the Virtual Innovation Accelerator.

The Virtual Innovation Accelerator is an opportunity for Emergination Africa to accelerate National Business Case Competitions student entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe to create economic opportunities in their communities through innovative ventures aligned to the SDGs. The top 5 ideas received seed capital of $ 5000 investment and prize money. This is an opportunity for the ventures to continue working on their solutions alongside their teacher coaches.
