Rwanda is a vibrant country with a population of 13 million, and an inspiring 75% of its people are under the age of 40.

While Rwanda boasts a robust educational system, it faces the challenge of high unemployment rates, with over 1 in 5 residents still seeking job opportunities, and many struggling to make ends meet on less than $100 per month.

Our mission is to be a catalyst for positive change. We proudly operate as both an entrepreneurial academy and an incubator. Our goal is to nurture and empower aspiring entrepreneurs and support existing businesses in Rwanda. Through education, investment, and innovation, we aim to ignite a wave of entrepreneurship that not only benefits these individuals and companies but also contributes to the reduction of youth unemployment, allowing our young talents to thrive and make a meaningful impact in their own country.
