We launched 10 Academy with the vision of supporting individuals that can develop Africa, at speed and scale.
Our mission is to find some of Africa’s best and brightest young people and to enable them to use their talent, work ethic and modern technology to launch solutions that can impact Africa, seeking to have upto 10x the impact of their peers.
This matters because Africa currently has a set of challenges (or opportunities) which, when solved, can impact large numbers of people including in healthcare, education, infrastructure, finance, entertainment and more.
10 Academy aims to find the most talented young people (intelligence + work ethic + creativity), give them training in modern skills (so they can do more, faster), create a culture of changemaking in them and connect them with opportunities so that they can launch their careers.
10 Academy is starting today with a focus on university graduates, 5 countries and data science – this will be expanded as soon as possible.
