As it pushes to help establish a world-class university in Africa, the African Institution of Technology will unveil its crowdfunding platform where anyone can donate any amount and get some perks. Perks range from recognition as a Founding Partner to having a college named after the individual or organization.
A new university in Abia State (Nigeria) structured to become one of the most advanced institutions in Africa. It has a Technology Park and the campus will be connected to Silicon Valley and Boston via TelePresence to enable deep collaborations with leading professors, top entrepreneurs and global innovation centers. Foundation class is planned to enroll in September 2015.
We will measure quality with three metrics – employability, citizenship and entrepreneurship. The school housed in a 250-acre land offers a vista to close the loop that exists within education, research and innovation in Africa by meeting the triple helix of educational, economic and scholarly impacts.
At AFRIT, our goal is to shape Africa’s future; join this movement to “assemble Africa’s brightest kids, educate them, and then empower them to invent the next future“. Five clusters (ICT, energy, minerals, health and agriculture) inside a technopark anchored by a world-class university; that is the masterplan.
Please check back tomorrow and partner with the non-profit to transform Africa.
