     Creating products with an impact on the most vulnerable people from the ground up is a side of entrepreneurship often not discussed. Arancha wants to change that. With a couple of social entrepreneurship projects under her belt, she understands how technology can lead to social change. She tells us about the challenges she’s been tackling with her projects and shares her take on the young leaders spearheading social change movements across the world.

Towett tells us more about Uthabiti, the entrepreneurial landscape in Africa and the overlap between Europe and Africa.
