Startup Guide Kigali: Volume 1 (Paperback)
Kigali is emerging as one of Africa's major major tech and investment hubs, due in part to its ease of doing business, strong infrastructure, excellent connectivity and lenient visa policies for incoming talent. The Rwanda Development Board has worked to drive growth and activity, leading to more international enterprise and investment. Sweden's Norrsken Foundation opened an innovation co-working hub and tech fund in Kigali in 2019 to support entrepreneurial ventures in the region. All of this adds up to Kigali being home to some of the most exciting startups on the continent. One such example is Yegomoto, voted "Best App in Africa for Mobility and Transport by AppsAfrica in 2018, which is working toward the country's vision of going cashless by 2020 by providing meters to the taxi industry. Startup Guide Kigali is full of valuable resources for entrepreneurs, insight into impact-driven initiatives and programs and tips for impact-driven new businesses. It also features interviews with founders, experts and investors who have helped Kigali emerge as an important tech and investment hub.
