Announcing a MEST podcast series in collaboration with The Global Startup Movement
In the last couple of months, Andrew Berkowitz of The Global Startup Movement has been on a mission to understand the fast-growing and evolving technology ecosystem in Africa - Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and all other 50 African countries.
He virtually stopped by our HQ Campus to have conversations with the team behind the MEST program and incubator and to gain first-hand knowledge of the tech entrepreneurship space in Accra and Lagos by engaging with some of our incubated companies' founders.
It is our hope that this podcast series shines light on what it takes to build a successful technology company in Africa in 2017.
We also hope we are able to provide insightful information to everyone who's contemplating entering the space in whatever capacity – entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other stakeholders.

Due to COVID-19, MEST postpones training program to next year and doubles down on growing portfolio companies
At MEST, we continue to be deeply concerned about COVID-19 and have been closely monitoring developments locally and globally. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our community and we will continue to follow local authority and health official guidelines.
Due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic and the uncertainty that the future of travel holds, we have been unable to conduct in-person interviews and host recruitment around Africa for our next cohort. For this reason, we have taken the decision to postpone the Training Program to next year.
While these circumstances are indeed unfortunate, we see this as an exciting opportunity at MEST to double down on providing support and mentorship to our existing portfolio companies and the African ecosystem.
