28 Nov Xynteo Exchange/Norway 2018 hosts impact-makers from around the world
The Marketplace, a curated experience connecting entrepreneurs, change-makers, industry-shapers and investors, applying commercial muscle to solving humanity’s most pressing problems, opened to a packed morning at the Xynteo Exchange/Norway 2018.
The Marketplace is designed to showcase 50 projects that can change the world, whilst creating opportunities to connect with those who can help these initiatives succeed.
Participating projects ranged from Embark, a reverse-mentoring scheme connecting young Syrian refugees with established business leaders, to Farmable, a platform that helps farmers obtain precise insights about their crops and operations, and Afroricas, who are empowering black women in Brazil, among others.
The Xynteo Exchange participants get to pick their favourite projects through votes, helping one project win the Impact Maker Award and a grand prize of EUR 50,000.
