Access2innovation has just completed a highly successful 9-day Go’N’See-trip to Kenya and Tanzania.
Eight private companies and the University of Aalborg participated, visiting counterparts such as ministries, NGOs, factories, farms and other potential partners and stakeholders in southern Kenya and the Dar-es-Salaam area in Tanzania.
Apart from concrete orders, all the participants were able to set up a platform for future business enterprises through the access2innovation network.
One of the participants was Søren Peter Eriksen from Neisig Økologi who joined the trip in order to investigate the possibilities of helping local farmers develop sustainable cash crops through intercropping.
“The trip was extremely inspiring,” he says, “The schedule set up by access2innovation was right on the mark. There were meetings every day from eight in the morning until ten in the evening. Both with international NGOs, embassies and large corporations, but also with local farmers and villagers.”
The next step for Neisig Økologi is to set up a partnership with other stakeholders in order to build on the knowledge they have already accumulated.
Other companies on the trip to Kenya and Tanzania included Gatehouse, ViewWorld, Pay-E Safe, Korslund, Skanfi and Arctic Group.
