think Welcomes Four New Tech Start Ups To New Accelerated Incubator Incubation hub think expands to meet demand by entrepreneurs for fast-track support
Millicom had the idea to create a hub where innovative tech solutions could be developed for the African continent. With that, Think Rwanda was launched.

 

Think started in April 2014, as an incubator to accelerate exceptional tech startups that develop applications for the African continent to consume. It is enabling startups to get off the ground and build innovative digital solutions for Africa by launching six month accelerator programs that mentor, coach and finance up to six startups at a time.

 

Think is about utilizing international and local talent and resources to develop applications that are relevant to the African masses and lead to more people using technologies to improve their livelihoods.

“In the first world, people place a great reliance on the technology available to them through smartphones to make their lives easy, by booking food, tickets or taxis. We want to do the same for Africa,” says Paul Soko, Manager of Think Accelerator in Kigali, Rwanda. “The countdown is on. We can’t wait to see the fruits of our labor and announce our second round of startups this summer. It’s like waiting for a child to be born.”

The startups have been shortlisted, but not yet announced. The lineup which will be made public this month. For more information about Think and the incubator program, click here.
