CEBIB student, Mr. Accadius Lunayo, is among six (6) promising African entrepreneurs competitively chosen by Swiss Sub-Sahara Business Innovation Initiative (SABII, an initiative of University of Basel) to tour Switzerland's startup ecosystem in June 2019. This will be the second phase of the exchange that will be supported by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.

SABII’s goal is to boost entrepreneurial knowledge and provide international exposure to university graduates in sub-Saharan Africa. The African-Swiss jury arrived at the decision for the award after receiving startup pitches at the end of a 3-days workshop held in Nairobi (Kenya) during the first phase of the program. The workshop is part of academia-industry training (AIT) organized by Venturelabs in collaboration with Afrilabs. The event organizers received more than 1,000 applications from 20 countries with innovative startups in biotechnology, digital learning, and mobile health. The AIT program aims to support scientists in transforming their high-level applied research into market application.

Mr. Lunayo’s company, Til'Data LLC based in Nairobi, uses 3D computational modelling to develop more efficient fertilizers and crop-vaccines for farmers.
