Papua New Guinea is teeming with innovative entrepreneurs looking for avenues to launch their ideas and products.
Since the 2017 Kumul Game Changer began, countless entrepreneurs have applied for a chance to develop their ideas and to ultimately be game changers.
It’s an opportunity that can’t be passed up, and the applicants who turned up to pitch to a panel of experts yesterday, understood this.
Panellist’s Anthony Smare, chairman of the Kumul Foundation and KGC success story, Shane Ninai, were blown away by the sheer creativity of the entrepreneurs.
Mr Smare said that the entrepreneurs witnessed the successful results of the 2015 edition and the talent this time around is stronger and better prepare because of their predecessors.
The applicants will be narrowed down to 40 finalists who will take part in the intensive, entrepreneurial boot camp.
The entrepreneurs have ideas and products for sectors ranging from agriculture to e-commerce.
