is the bridge between Africa’s top talent and global business.

Africa has never lacked talent, just opportunity.

 

We offer global companies the ability to access an untapped talent pool: African Data Scientists. Ishango.ai run a fully-funded Data Science Fellowship Program: we take masters graduates from across Africa and give them the skills required by global business.

What We Do

Ishango.ai is an innovative social enterprise bringing high skill data science jobs to Africa, and demonstrating the wealth of talent available on the continent.

We run a fully-funded, residential data science fellowship lasting 8 weeks. Along the way, we ensure fellows have the opportunity to expand their existing soft-skills and technical skills.

Fellows gain real world experience whilst working remotely, delivering value adding projects for global host organisations.

Fellowship Highlights 2021

In September 2021, Ishango.ai working in partnership with the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), hosted our first cohort of 14 Fellows in Kigali, Rwanda. The Fellows, 50% of whom were women, delivered projects for 6 international partner companies, contributing to a diverse set of business solutions within areas of financial services, healthcare, agriculture & marketing. The work of the fellows resulted in tangible and actionable contributions with some partner companies implementing their work into the production line and other partner companies opting to extend the contract with their Ishango.ai fellows.
