Central African Republic Technology Entrepreneurship and ICT Leadership Accelerator Background

The Central African Republic (CAR) Technology Entrepreneurship and ICT Leadership Accelerator is oriented for start-up and early stage technology company founders and managers in the Bangui and nearby regions.  The project has the goals of assisting and mentoring early stage company founders and managers to increase their potential for building successful and viable businesses and furthering their overall ICT leadership capacity.  

The program consists of an initial one day kickoff at the University of Bangui and then subsequent weekly virtual engagement over the course of three months. The curricula is based upon best practices in CIO and technology leadership programs and experiences of Africa based technology accelerators. 

During the three months the founders and managers will develop plans to strengthen their businesses and further their individual technology leadership abilities.  The program will conclude with a final day of presentations and discussion at the University of Bangui. The weekly engagement during the three months of the program between the launch and the conclusion will be SMS based.

A key element of the Technology Entrepreneurship Accelerator will be 15 – 20 technology business mentors in both the Central African Republic and in the U.S.  The Central African Republic and U.S. mentors will provide insight and guidance to the business founders and managers as well as form a cohort themselves providing for exchange on U.S. and Central African Republic business policy and culture.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State, the project partners are George Mason University (Fairfax, Virginia, USA); the University of Bangui and recent Humphrey Fellow and Central African Republic technology executive Serge Adouaka.
