Educat Educat support entrepreneurs accelerating their businesses through various programs that are tailor made towards the individual entrepreneurs need, challenges and opportunities.
Accelerator / Incubator
Educat envisions a Rwanda where people have the opportunities, tools, and resources to define the best possible futures for themselves, their community, and their country, and a Rwanda that is seen as a place of productive investment and expansive opportunity, and a global role model for creating sustainable business and growth.
Educat’s mission is to challenge and support entrepreneurs, leaders, and change-makers to follow their dreams, dare to be innovative, and diverge from the norm in order to create thriving businesses and precipitate job creation. Our approach is to take the successes of the past and combine it with dreams of the future.
Educat is a creative and professional disturbance to business-as-usual and creates a platform where it is not only acceptable but encouraged to take risks, think and act out of the box, question the established, and follow new paths.
Educat is an ambassador of new mindsets and a catalyst for change.
In our work, we follow five guiding principles:
We foster entrepreneurial skills, attitudes and opportunities, as we believe that change starts with the mindset of each individual
We do not provide the answers. We provide opportunities for people to follow their dreams, and the framework and tools to transform those dreams into action.
We believe in the power of creativity and innovation, and we strive to always explore new approaches to the work we do while always learning from the past.
We believe that we can all learn from each other, and we strive to create collaborative partnerships that transcend sectors, skillsets, and borders.
We want to have fun with what we do and to make it reflect on our partnerships and services.
