AB InBev’s 100+ Accelerator is partnering with One Young World for #Lead2030’s SDG 5 Challenge: Gender Equality. This challenge aims to find and support solutions from innovative female-founded startups that address pressing sustainability issues around renewable energy, carbon emissions reduction, smart agriculture, circular packaging, water stewardship and upcycling waste.

Digital skills training solutions that measurably and lastingly improve the knowledge and practices of women-owned/operated small enterprises, with the potential for significant scale
