Applications Open For Class 2022 Of The MEST Training Program


March 13, 2021, 1 a.m.

The Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) has opened applications for its next one-year, fully-sponsored entrepreneurial training program in Accra, Ghana.

Launched in 2008, MEST is a pan-African training program, seed fund, and incubator for technology entrepreneurs in Africa, providing critical skills training in software development, business, and communications.

Applications are open until April 29, 2021, for the program, which will offer successful applicants in-depth training and mentorship, access to a global network, and the opportunity to build the next generation of global software companies. It is open to entrepreneurs living in Ghana and Nigeria only, given travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, and will commence in September.

The training is delivered by global experts and includes extensive hands-on project work, as well as mentorship from successful entrepreneurs, CEOs, and other executives from Silicon Valley, Europe, and Africa. The program culminates in an investor pitch for seed funding and the opportunity to grow a business out of one of the pan-African MEST incubators in Lagos, Accra, Cape Town, and Nairobi.

In September MEST had invested a combined US$700,000 in seven tech startups formed by graduates from its most recent entrepreneurial training program.
