Ingressive For Good has launched its non-profit arm, after the advisory company and venture fund. In case you did not know, Ingressive For Good (I4G) is a not-for-profit organization that addresses the glaring inequities that exist within African tech ecosystems by increasing the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.
Africa has the largest youth population, which creates a growth opportunity. This opportunity is stifled by poverty and unemployment, with 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.
