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 2 months. 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.
