Talent 4 Startups is a program which aims to support the training of talents in tech and digital professions on the African continent. By covering the costs of training in high-demand sectors and then facilitating the connection between talents and start-ups that are recruiting, Talent 4 Startups improves the employability of young people while meeting the skills needs of the ecosystem.

Talent 4 Startups is developed by Digital Africa, in partnership with Make-IT in Africa, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, and the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The program is a pilot deploying training scholarships for tech and digital jobs. It aims to meet the skills’ needs expressed by the continent’s startups by training young people, who will then be matched with startups seeking local talent. For its initial deployment, Talent 4 Startups plans to award 280 scholarships. This number is expected to increase in the future.
