The Solution

We are a non profit startup studio on a mission to ensure young talented Africans can access Africa's digital transformation opportunity as creators and owners.

"Having a front-row seat to Changing the African Narrative has completely shifted my mindset. It is no longer about simply advancing in my career; the work we do is bigger than us and this has helped me realize my true potential"
Damaris Kongin - Cohort III, 2020

1. Developing Innovation Leaders

We provide 12 month innovation fellowships to talented college graduates affording them the opportunity to work on well vetted projects under the guidance of an experienced leadership team and mentor network.

My biggest milestone has been seeing a project transition into a startup. Working on Jenga School has been challenging yet fulfilling. I'm thrilled about what more we can do.

2. Launching Startups
