Smart City Digital Solutions gather data from various Internet of Things (IoT) devices and propose actions to manage assets, resources and services efficiently. With this in mind, we developed digital solutions with local tech companies to transform cities into smart cities.
Over the past couple of years digital solutions have penetrated all kinds of areas and also the medical sector. Hence, the DigiCenter has supported the Rwandan Government in implementing a solution to digitize the supply chain of blood bags.

VR / AR Lab
Virtual and Augmented Reality has gained international attention due to the limitations of physical meetings imposed by COVID-19. More and more decision makers are recognizing the potential of this technology. Read in this article, how the DigiCenter supports the VR/AR community on the ground and local developers and applications in Rwanda.
Often, individual projects can make little difference due to limited reach and connections. In 2017, the Digital Transformation Center in Rwanda emerged as a pilot for collaboration between the Rwandan government and the private sector. Nowadays, 5 projects are part of the DigiCenter, and numerous Rwandan government agencies, innovation hubs, and tech startups are working with the DigiCenter. As we celebrate our 2-year anniversary, we look back at the DigiCenter’s journey.
A physical space where ideas based on Internet of Things technology can be tried out is a great support and financial relief for startups. This allows them to check for the time being whether an investment is worthwhile and to test and further develop prototypes with the necessary technology. For this purpose, DSSD has set up an Innovation Lab at the DigiCenter and has now opened its premises to interested entrepreneurs.
