TechEmerge Expands to Temperature-Controlled Logistics in Nigeria. unnamed

In early December, TechEmerge will launch an open call for innovators worldwide to bring their sustainable solutions in temperature-controlled logistics (TCL) to Nigeria. The program is being conducted in collaboration with Kobo 360—an e-logistics platform operating across Africa that connects truckers to customers. It offers market access to Africa’s largest economy, and a pool of up to $1 million in funding to top innovators matched with leading Nigerian companies to jointly pilot affordable, sustainable solutions that reduce losses in cold chains, strengthen access to TCL-dependent products and markets, and build commercial partnerships.

Open Call results: Congratulations to Cooling Innovators Worldwide.

TechEmerge is excited to announce the results of our open call for innovators worldwide to bring their sustainable cooling solutions to Latin America. In total, we received 112 solutions from 80 innovators in 20 countries. After careful evaluation from the TechEmerge team and our network of expert advisors, 57 innovators were selected to proceed to the matchmaking stage with leading companies in Mexico and Colombia. We would like to send our sincere thanks to everyone who applied. Even if you were not successful this time, please join the open events at our upcoming innovation summit and stay tuned for more opportunities to join our mission to spur innovation where it is needed most.
