Congratulations to the prequalified teams, who have already been contacted by the USPF Changemaker Challenge 2017 Team with invitations to the National Finals and instructions on next steps.

For the entries that did not prequalify from their respective regions, we would like to encourage them to refine and upgrade their solutions, as well as to continue to innovate. Truly innovative solutions will invariably attract opportunities for investment, mentorship, and eventual success.

All entrants who will be in Lagos or its environs on the 27th and 28th of October 2017, and are interested in attending the National Finals, are welcome to attend as spectators. Please note that the refund of transportation only applies to prequalified teams.

Thank you to all entrants for participating in the USPF Changemaker Challenge 2017, and we wish you all continued success for the future.

Look out for update and details of the solutions in this space.
