At the virtual Future Human event earlier this year, Elaine Burke interviewed Team Memory Haven.

Team Memory Haven was the only team from the EU to make it to the senior division finals at the Technovation World Summit in August 2020, and came out triumphant.

Technovation finalists were challenged to come up with apps that could make a positive impact on the world and Memory Haven is an app meant to help patients with dementia and their families.

Teenagers Margaret Akano, Rachael Akano and Joy Njekwe found themselves in the global spotlight after they took home a top prize from the international competition and, along with their mentor Evelyn Nomayo, they were nominated for the 2020 Women of Europe Awards.
