Bpeace aims to raise $10,000 in seed capital for each Race finalist through donations from people like you. The top winner will additionally receive a trip to the U.S. to meet with technical advisors in their industry. The Race encourages entrepreneurs by connecting them with pro-bono business consulting and access to capital to strengthen their businesses, creating peace and unity through job creation.
Race finalists were selected through an innovation review, an in-person interview by respective local judges, and a business review by U.S. Bpeace volunteers. Applications were judged on business viability, innovativeness, and community impact.
The Race to Innovation is another example of Bpeace’s commitment to spurring peace through employment. Bpeace believes jobs are the bridge to reduced poverty, increased education, and improved health. More jobs mean less violence.sm
