ICT for Development/Education
In 2006, Inveneo, a start-up non-profit social enterprise, committed to build a corps of Information Communications Technology (ICT) entrepreneurs to deliver ICTs -- computing , local networks, access to the Internet -- to organizations that provide education, healthcare, economic development and relief in remote and highly under-served regions in the developing world.
Since this date, Inveneo has been able to raise funds from Cisco, AMD, Lottomatica, the Orr Foundation and individuals to enable us to: (1) Launch the Inveneo Certified ICT Partner Program (ICIP) in January 2007; and (2) Develop the process to recruit, vet, train, certify and provide ongoing support to ICT entrepreneurs (small businesses typically 2 - 20 in size).
To date, Inveneo has certified 38 companies in 13 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa so they are now able to expand their market opportunity to rural projects, earn income from these projects and ultimately get more technology out to organizations who work in rural and underserved areas in some of the poorest regions. Together, Inveneo and our local partners have delivered ICTs to over 250 communities, reaching more than 700,000 people with directly or indirectly with life-impacting ICTs.
