Werner Swart, the engineer and founder of Drylobag, has been entered in the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation. Drylobag has benefited enormously from participation in this initiative, and could not have come this far without the Royal Academy’s support.

“Participation in the business training workshops helped me to validate the innovation, refine my business model, and gave me confidence to proceed rapidly towards full commercialisation.
I am now better able to secure our supply chain and plan our route to market; and to understand what investors will be looking for in a new business. I would like to thank my mentor, Mr Paymon Danesphay for excellent advice and guidance”.~ Werner Swart ~

The results for The Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation will be announced on the 26 May in Dar es Salaam
