How we got started?

We've had ideas, we came together, started masterclasses, opened them to our communities, saw the impact that we were creating, then decided to grow and support a community of data science problem solvers.

Talks we've done in the past

Our Community


We are based in 4 countries with a growing community of over 2,500 emerging data scientists solving Africa's Grand Challenges.
