Our Mission

 

Our mission is to facilitate the cross-pollination of knowledge, ideas and shared experiences between leading tech industry professionals across the African diaspora.

We aim to connect these professionals through project-based immersive programming, creating the space for shared learning and experiences. Partnering to solve key business challenges, the fellowship connects companies in Africa with fellows in Silicon Valley, California who have expertise in Product Management, Engineering, UI/UX Design, Business Development, Marketing, and Human Resources & Talent.

Our model is built on the following pillars:

  • Knowledge: exchange ideas and expertise via project-based learning

  • Talent: develop talent in yourself and others through peer mentorship

  • Experience: get firsthand experience and build relationships in Africa through immersion and community events

The inaugural program will take place over the course of four months, with fellows in Silicon Valley, California acting as virtual consultants and peer mentors with partner companies in Lagos, Nigeria. The fellowship will include a two-week excursion in Lagos. Learn more
