Vice-Chancellor of the Namibia University of Science and Technology, Dr Erold Naomab says there is a need to include low-income communities and underserved groups in the development of novel products and services, including in, among other things food and agro-processing, mining and value addition, digital and global business services, and green hydrogen. Speaking at the start of the Innovation Investment Readiness Week currently taking place in the capital, Naomab, stressing that Namibia is positioned to become Africa’s renewable energy hub, explained that new business opportunities exist for entrepreneurs who want to combine profit with a social impact and that Namibians can only make meaningful contributions to the country’s development through constructive, transparent and “brutally” authentic engagements backed by action.
