“Road to success runs through KIGALI” – Jam Nelavai, CEO – TechAffinity
Jam Nelavai, CEO said, for TechAffinity the year 2020 was a year of mitigation and 2021 a year of transformation. During the pandemic when many companies started hiring freelancers and contractors across the globe, TechAffinity started to invest in setting up development centers in strategic locations to hire local talents and cater to that region/market.
Rwanda was a clear choice as it offers safety, business-friendly government, good infrastructure, young talent, and a warm welcome more than any other country in the region. There is no doubt that our Kigali data center will be another center of excellence and model for others.
Presiding over the ceremony, Minister of ICT & Innovation Paula Ingabire reiterated that the move to open a new chapter in Rwanda was the right move.
She also made reassurances to TechAffinity and local talent – “Welcome TechAffinity to Rwanda, you are in the right place, and I believe the center will be a great addition to our innovation & technology ecosystem, and look forward to your collaboration with the local startups, your contributions to the growth of the sector.” – Paula Ingabire, Hon. Minister of ICT & Innovation
