A Capacity Building Program For
Tech Talents and
Tech Innovators

Background

In Rwanda, most of the innovations in Technology, start-ups, or even ideas, supporting projects and initiatives are concentrated in the capital city of Kigali and there is little knowledge about Tech Talents outside the capital. Therefore; the Rwanda ICT Chamber in partnership with the German IT association BITMi initiated the project to create awareness, build interest in young people, and identify promising Tech Talents across all provinces in Rwanda that can be further supported.

The project will be conducted during in three phases: talent detection across the country, training, and a hackathon. 250STARTUPS, FabLab and kLab were selected as a consortium to implement the project.
