Empowering Women in Côte dIvory Coast Through Entrepreneurial Education and Digital & Data Skills

There's a Problem That Needs Solving.

Current education systems were built for an economy and society that doesn't exist anymore. It is failing to produce the 4.5 million software engineers that are needed worldwide, to teach students the skills that companies actually need and will pay for, and to prepare students to be successful entrepreneurs and build viable ventures with solutions to local issues. Education needs revolutionizing.

We exist to close this gap and equip women with the 21st century skills they need to future-proof their careers and have an impact.
