We are proud to announce that OKO has been selected as one of the 6 finalists of the 2017 Youth Summit Competition! Out of 500 applicants from more than 100 countries, OKO was chosen to present its project to the World Bank.
The theme this year is “Technology & Innovation for Impact”, and includes 3 sub-themes:
Transforming the Jobs and Skills of Tomorrow
Leveraging Technology for Financial Inclusion
Igniting Youth Entrepreneurship.
OKO’s solution is leveraging mobile and satellite technology to bring relevant financial services to farmers previously un-insured. We are excited to be given this opportunity. The competition takes place on the 4th and 5th of December and will be broadcasted online at this address: http://www.worldbank.org/en/events/2017/08/08/world-bank-group-youth-summit-2017#3
