In September 2016, REFUNITE was selected as a Top Innovator by the United Nations and as one of ten solutions to be presented at the Solutions Summit during the United Nations General Assembly week in New York. Six months down line,  the Social Summit entrepreneurs joined the “Flight to Denver”,  an intensive start-up mentoring program led by Project X-ITE, an initiative by the University of Denver that aims to advance innovation and technology globally.

From March 31st to April 2nd, 17 entrepreneurs from 15 companies spread across 11 countries met and collaborated for the three-day boot camp. Ida Jeng from REFUNITE joined the entrepreneurs crew and worked on co-developing ideas to tackle some of the goals of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
