Ingressive has launched its non-profit arm, dubbed Ingressive For Good (I4G) to address the glaring inequities that exist within African tech ecosystems by increasing the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.
Ingressive For Good aims to help youth in Africa, who form the largest population, with growth opportunities in a continent stifled by poverty and unemployment.
“The 3 core goals of Ingressive For Good are to create 5,000 jobs through partnerships, connect 1,000,000 African youth to technical skills training and award scholarships to qualified individuals studying computer science courses, in line with our overarching mission to leverage need-based resources, learning, and the power of work to empower African youths in tech.” said Sean Burrowes, COO and Co-Founder of Ingressive for Good.
The current COVID19 crisis expected to further drive unemployment, foreclosures, and an economic recession, thereby placing tremendous stress on millions of African youth.
The emerging digital and tech ecosystem is particularly crucial as a multiplier of growth because access to technology enhances consumer information, networking, job-creating resources, and even financial inclusion.
The initiative, as part of the company’s responsibility to empower, inspire, and connect the next generation of tech talents in need of opportunities, will help the participants with micro-scholarships, technical training, talent placement, and also provide other resources to empower them.
Interested participants can register here to be part of the I4G network and also access more opportunities, and resources.
Two weeks ago, Ingressive Capital doubled its investment vehicle to $10 Million to support the next generation of African innovators either pre-seed and seed-stage tech-enabled businesses in the B2B space.
Ingressive Capital average $200k to $400k checks and target 10-percent ownership into companies they fund.
