Rwanda Build Accelerator Programme

Last month three tech solutions were launched at Impact Hub Kigali: YegoBox, Ifeza Florists and Hello Kigali. The three products were developed under a three-month Rwanda Build accelerator progamme hosted at Impact Hub’s co-working space.

The Rwanda Build programme aims to help create a better culture of software development in Rwanda. The solutions have been developed in Rwanda by Rwandans, but the teams received support during the project development phase and mentorship on business needs.

YegoBox is a Rwanda cloud file storage solution that supports website hosting. It also supports e-commerce solutions using their YegoBox payment option and database support.

Ifeza Florists is an e-commerce platform that offers payment options for mobile money and VISA, built by Yvette Michelle Nigihozo of Ifeza Florists. It also has an online market where people can order for fresh flowers, bouquets, and gifts and they are delivered to their loved ones around Kigali.

The third solution, Hello Kigali for Android, is a Kigali city discovery guide for restaurants, cafes, WiFi and more.
