Using innovation as the catalyst for growth and creative sustainability.
The NBII took the lead with the first-ever Namibian Innovation Festival, which was aptly themed Innovation in Manufacturing. The event took place at the Habitat Research and Development Centre in Windhoek.

The primary objective of the Innovation Festival was to approach the manufacturing sector in a local context and explore how Namibia can sustainably position itself as a global contender. During her opening remarks, CEO of Team Namibia, Ms Daisry Mathias encouraged the exhibitors to strive for excellence by stating "we at Team Namibia desire to see Namibia well positioned in world markets as the country of origin of some of the most innovative and competitive products and services".

NBII created a platform for local innovators to exhibit and showcase their products and services and to engage with visitors regarding the manufacturing process, the stories that motivated their businesses, what makes their product unique and how their product is making a difference to their customers’ lives.

Awards and prizes where presented to winning exhibitors.


In the spirit of transparency, we wish to inform you of changes due at Team Namibia Secretariat. Ms Daisry Mathias will be stepping down as Chief Executive Officer of Team Namibia, effective 15 July 2015.

The Board of Directors are sad to say goodbye to Daisry so soon in her capacity as CEO, but believe she leaves to make a greater contribution to our beautiful country and we wish her success.
