Rwanda has made it no secret that it wants to become an ICT and innovation hub on the continent. It is in line with that ambition that the government in partnership with German development agency GIZ recently launched a digital transformation centre that is expected to support Tech Start Ups and offer a place for development and testing of tech solutions.
