Established in Ghana in 2008, MEST is a school of incubator for African Start-ups. MEST offers aspiring African entrepreneurs a fully sponsored twelve month, intensive full-time program. Sourced from top graduates in Ghana and with the inclusion of Nigeria this year, 30 of these Entrepreneurs-In-Training (EITs) are selected each year and receive comprehensive training across the spectrum of skills required to build successful tech businesses, including computer programming, software development, product management, finance, marketing, sales and leadership best practices.
The Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) and the MEST Incubator program provide training, investment and mentoring for aspiring technology entrepreneurs so as to create globally successful companies that would in turn create wealth and jobs locally in Africa.
The trainees come from diverse academic backgrounds, including French, Theater, Computer Science, Engineering, Business, and the Social Sciences. After completion of the program, the EITs have the opportunity to pitch a concept. Winning teams receive a seed round from the MEST incubator to pursue their idea.
Are you a Nigerian graduate and have completed NYSC? Or a Ghanaian graduate with a desire to start a software company?
All EITs receive a full scholarship as tuition is covered by MEST with free accommodation.
Then there is monthly stipend for the duration of the twelve-month program.
