May 31, 2021 | Project BAG Innovation Rwanda's economic growth continues to soar, yet the challenge to combat youth unemployment persists. From its inception, BAG Innovation has been trying to tackle issues that contribute to youth unemployment, mainly; the lack of preparedness of students upon completion of university and the lack of employment opportunity during their time in university to equip them with adequate work experience to enter the workforce.
Upskilling Rwanda's youth workforce with BAG Innovation
To start, could you tell me a little about BAG Innovation? How does your platform work and who do you intend to serve? Gabriel: BAG Innovation was founded after we realised that more than 70% of university graduates here in East Africa are unemployed in their first year after graduation.

The LOOP Accelerator Rwanda Program in Rwanda aims to amplify eleven high potential education start-ups with founders between 18-25 years. The LOOP Accelerator is the first program of its kind to meet the needs of Rwanda education-based start-ups, who, under normal circumstances, would not have access to similar programs. The program is designed to have a long-lasting impact on these start-ups and the participating entrepreneurs and is designed to accelerate scalable and sustainable businesses that can multiply job creation in the region. The program is implemented with support by GIZ and Make-IT in Africa and is facilitated by BPN Rwanda and BAG Innovation. Stay in touch: https://twitter.com/looprwanda
