After five months of hard work, every team consisting of entrepreneurs and students in the Spring 2022 H-Accelerator submitted a pitch deck that was collaboratively crafted. The top five presentations were selected by our internal and external selection board, with a special thanks to David Wei for being an impartial body. The final five teams were invited to present at the Humans to Humans Spring 2022 Impact Summit on May 1st. It was lovely to see everyone connect with a record high 93 impact-makers at the Summit.
Afyachapchap, MARA Agribusiness, Ozfarm, Edith Healthcare, and Plasticity were all given the opportunity to pitch in front of our judging panel composed of James Anquandah, Lulama Selele, Silvia von Gunten, and Walter Erike.
After much spirited deliberation, Afyachapchap emerged as the winning team! Afychapchap is a Kenyan online marketplace of approved medical service providers designed to increase access to quality healthcare. The team was composed of co-founder and CEO Mercyline Masanya, as well as Tuhin Chilakamarri from Cornell University, Huanxing Chen from the University of Oxford, and Riddhi Modi from the New York Institute of Technology.
Congratulations to all the teams and a massive thank you to the judges and all of our supporters for making this event a success!
