Nigerian technology entrepreneurs graduate in Ghana

23 June 2016, 09:09

Lagos – The first batch of entrepreneurs on a training programme sponsored by a Nigerian digital payments and commerce company has graduated in Ghana.

The 19 graduates have been capped the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) in Accra courtesy of a sponsorship by Interswitch.

Interswitch and MEST launched this partnership in 2014 to support aspiring young Nigerians by equipping them with the skills they need to launch successful businesses across Africa.

The Entrepreneurs in Training scheme gives young Africans the chance to be the African business leaders of the future.

Mitchell Elegbe, Founder and Group Managing Director of Interswitch, said his company was passionate and committed to growing the Tech Ecosystem in the continent.

“Investing in people with exceptional ideas that can grow into something really impactful and solve problems in Africa, is essential to us,” said Elegbe.

He said Africa was changing rapidly, and it was vitally important that local young people had the opportunity to not only fulfill their own potential but to proceed and change the continent’s fortunes.

“Interswitch will like to offer our warmest congratulations to the graduates and wish them the very best in their endeavours.”
