These startups are setting the pace for change in their respective fields and are tackling some of the most important global issues, such as cybersecurity, food security, and climate change.
One hundred startups from around the world make up this year’s cohort, including six each from Africa Okra, Access Afya, Sendy, Pula Advisors, Ejara, and Ampersand.
