Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
The Association of African Entrepreneurs is connecting young entrepreneurs around Africa and linking them to resources and opportunities to help them make their startup a success. As part of our support program we are boosting these entrepreneurs by giving them basic websites. The volunteer would be asked to provide the technical web development expertise required to make this program a success. Our beneficiaries have great amounts of energy, ingenuity, and ambition however they don’t have access to the resources needed to live up to all that ambition.
Technology development
IT architecture and IT project management
The “startup lifecycle” is a journey characterized by a unique set of obstacles to deal with and overcome. Chiefly among these obstacles are capital and marketing. Also, they are not taken seriously because of poor web presence. A professional web presence can help that customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily find out more about their business and the products or services they have to offer. The Association of African Entrepreneurs offers close support to the most promising startup entrepreneurs providing direct linkage to mentors, investors and market opportunities. We will support them in growing faster, better, and stronger.
