The nFrnds Young Entrepreneurs Fellowship Program being run by nFrnds in partnership with the Rwanda ICT Chamber, kLab, Africa Innovation Prize, RwandaOnline, Balton Rwanda and Microsoft is being launched this week in Kigali with an intensive boot-camp designed to provide hands-on experience and entrepreneurial training to young Rwandan graduates. Participants taking part in the boot-camp will receive training in marketing, sales and business development and have an opportunity to put their skills into practice while receiving support and mentorship from the nFrnds team, local facilitators and guest lecturers. Throughout the program fellows will continue to receive practical training and first-hand experience and upon completion of the program fellows will be accredited as nFrnds Entrepreneurs with the opportunity to continue running their own micro-businesses developed during the fellowship and gaining commission from sales of nFrnds or its partners’ services. Whichever path graduates choose they will benefit from the practical experience and new skills sets developed during the fellowship regardless of whether they stay on with nFrnds or our partners, go on to join a company or start their own venture.
As part of the program nFrnds will be co-hosting together with Rwanda Online a Speed Mentoring Cocktail where fellows will present their new business plans and receive feedback from visiting World Economic Forum delegates and local business leaders. As part of the week long activities, nFrnds, a technology company providing a managed cloud platform accessible from any mobile phone announced it has selected Kigali as its African Head Quarters, according to CEO Dorron Mottes, "Rwanda is the obvious choice to make our base in Africa given our great partners, the warm and welcoming business environment and exciting developments in the ICT field that are going on in this country" nFrnds is committed to playing it role in developing the capacity of young graduates to play a part together with its local partners in the ICT transformation that is already taking place in this country.
