To help promote STEM education in sub-Saharan Africa, the Injini team held a Bootcamp for early-stage EdTech entrepreneurs that are focused on improving the quality and accessibility of STEM education from K-12. After 2 weeks of coursework and pitching to a panel of Judges, Skooqs walked away with a R5 000 cash prize and business mentorship from Injini. Skooqs is a Nigerian-based startup that offers an online learning platform to learners outside their traditional classroom setting. Congratulations to Oluwadamilola Soyombo for all the hard work during the programme.
In the last year, Injini has run several Virtual EdTech Bootcamps aimed at stimulating growth and development across the Sub-Saharan Africa EdTech ecosystem. Recently, Injini has worked with 10 EdTech startups from Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and South Africa; who are building EdTech solutions that are designed to improve the accessibility, quality, and relevance of STEM education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
