The UNICEF Startup Lab is a co-creation space and incubator located at UNICEF’s offices in Accra-Ghana.
It aims to actively engage young startups in the development of innovative, open-source, market-driven products and solutions that help address complex problems impacting the well-being of children and young people, especially the most vulnerable.
The Lab provides a platform for co-creation by bringing together partnerships from within the startup ecosystem in Ghana (including among civil society, academia and the private sector) to identify and enable the next generation of impact-focused businesses.
Through Generation Unlimited, UNICEF and partners are connecting secondary and tertiary education and training to employment and entrepreneurship and empowering every young person to thrive in the world of work.
