In a significant move towards fostering technological innovation and nurturing young talent, Ingryd Academy, a tech talent hub has launched a scholarship programme focused on empowering 1,000 aspiring tech professionals.

The company through a statement said the initiative aims to tackle the tech talent shortage in Africa, with a bold goal of training 4,000 tech professionals annually.

Participants will receive training in strategic and in demand niche technical skills like Java, Linux, Cybersecurity, and Data Science.

Ingryd explained that over the next three months, these individuals will undergo rigorous training and mentorship, equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in the ever-evolving tech industry.

This comes barely a month after its strategic partnership with the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund was announced.

The Ingryd Scholarship Programme aligns with the academy’s mission to empower individuals with vital technical skills.

The Managing Director Khadijat Abdulkadir said, “Contrary to popular belief, there are jobs available, but the problem is that there are not enough people qualified for those jobs. Ingryd is training people to perform in those jobs.”
