Ich freue mich über die Möglichkeit Ihnen und Ihrer guten Idee in der Jury zur Verfügung zu stehen. - Volker A. Schmidt, General Manager Consumer Health Kenya - Merck Ltd.

Unser Afrika-Bild verengt sich leider immer wieder auf zwei Blickwinkel: das Hunger-Afrika oder das Safari-Afrika. Dass dieser Kontinent vielschichtig ist, dass es zum Beispiel auch ein urbanes, akademisches Afrika gibt, wird meist ausgeblendet. Es ist gut, wenn ein Projekt wie 'Lions of Science' dazu beiträgt, akademischen Nachwuchs zu fördern und zugleich auch die Wahrnehmung dieses Kontinents zu weiten. - Marietta Slomka, news anchor - ZDF (German-TV)

I think the idea, the network and the Lions of Science approach are excellent. - Margot Weiler, Coordinator - DAAD Program ‘Welcome to Africa’

Lions of Science is an excellent organisation that I'm following since the very beginning in 2012. We need this kind of spirit and mentality that allows others to unfold their entrepreneurial potential. Education, Innovation and Entrepreneurship are the keys that will allow us to grow towards a promising future. - Dr. Bitange Ndemo, 'Father' of Kenyan Internet

Excellent entrepreneurship! - Jos Eussen, Director - Regional Centre Of Expertise (Rhine-Meuse)
