A thriving ecosystem is a hallmark of a growing and vibrant ecosystem. Not only capacity-building but also incubator programs are important drivers for the growth of start-ups in Rwanda. This article explores the role being played by the DigiCenter to enhance Rwanda’s tech/incubator ecosystem.
The Digital Transformation Center is a Rwandan-German initiative aimed at developing impact-driven digital solutions in Africa. This is done through our innovation studio where we develop SDG aligned, impact-driven digital solutions. These solutions make services accessible for everyone and improve the lives of vulnerable groups. In addition, the DigiCenter focuses on capacity building, culture change and equipping our tech community with digital and management skills.
Hubs and Incubators in Rwanda
DigiCenter – Creating linkages between the government, the private sector and civil society
The Digicenter fits into the ecosystem by creating linkages between the government, private sector and civil society in the following ways:
created with the different hubs and incubators to empower their respective members. This is done through trainings, workshops and various events.
of ministries and other government institutions like RISA through support in developing ICT strategies and policies as well as optimizing their business processes. For this purpose, we organize study tours, facilitate trainings and conduct studies with government officials.
Empowering our Tech Community
One of the ways we empower our community is through teams spotlight events. In these meetups, teams that we supported and worked with share about their entrepreneurial journey and their projects.
In an effort to move our ecosystem forward, a newsletter is shared bi-monthly with various stakeholders addressing achievements and opportunities within the ecosystem. To be part of this mailing list, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to even more collaborations and capacity building.
