CivTechSA partnered with The Entrepreneurial World to present students with an opportunity to solve civic challenges in their community by working in teams to research, build, and pitch their solutions. Through the amazing mentorship from Washington Navarro of The Entrepreneurial World, five teams developed and pitched their solutions to city officials and local tech leaders. Ideas pitched ranged from industries trading reusable waste, to a sustainable mobile food truck.
