Hi, we’re Renaissance
We reimagine Africa in today’s world of rapid technological development. We find the smartest people, provide them with the right tools for success, and generate innovative solutions for individuals, industries and organizations.
In 2019, our founder Joseph realized that in spite of the increasing supply of young talents in the region only a few had the opportunities to grow and explore their innovative ideas. It was out of this great need that RIL was born. That same year, we partnered with other tech communities in Port Harcourt for the international space apps challenge.
RIL has been on a mission to revolutionize Africa’s tech space with disrupting innovations and solutions to the biggest issues. We’ve invested heavily to nurture local talents. We have supported collaborations in building ground-up solutions that have authentic value to Africans.
In 2021, we launched our fellowship program which was designed to unite young innovators. We trained over 25 innovators, providing them with resources including access to industry experts. Some of these young innovators are currently employed by international partner organizations using the skills learnt under us.
With a proven track record of success in collaboration and nurturing tech talents, we launched the RILearn program. With this program, we have trained 15 in our bootcamp and 11 young teens and children talents via our Kids in Tech programs. We hosted various tech events including, Motion Design Experience (MDX), React Event and the RILExpo. We have fostered career development via our online communities and RILdiscuss.
Our mission is to move people forward through social, economic, and technological progress. We’re enabling a culture of orchestrated development that supports technology enthusiasts, aspiring entrepreneurs, and well-meaning individuals and organizations in the quest to redefine our society and communities for the better.
Our singular vision is to build a company capable of redefining our society and communities for the better.
