We Are Not Creating Brain Drain – Andela

0

Many  of African tech stakeholders and industry watchers have criticised many tech incubation firms in the continent as creating a “brain drain” Andela inclusively. A situation that the tech firm has come out openly to debunk and refute. This was in a forum some days ago.

In the words of Andela’s Vice President

“Andela is not creating a brain drain, show me another company that has 600 developers that come into the office everyday in Africa.” – Wambui Kinya,

Wambui made  this known  at the just concluded Transform Africa Summit, hosted by Smart Africa, Home of Transform Africa Summit , where she was on a panel that discussed Building A Digital Workforce for A Digital Society,

Andela helps companies quickly and confidently scale their software teams with world-class, full-time developers. Having partnered with big firms like Payoff etc, bringing one of the biggest investment in the ICT ecosystem in Africa, South Africa to be precise, the 40 million Rand investment was said to be one of the biggest venture capital investment in the continent.

Though, Andela is an American company that specializes in training software developers. The company was founded in 2014 and is based in New York City. It can be said to have “Africanized” due to its strides in the continent. The organisation recently recognised the role of women and mothers  in Africa this last mothers day .
