Blick auf Kigali

The Westerwelle Foundation has been registered as an “international non-governmental organisation” (iNGO) in Rwanda. The registration is a central step in the process of creating the Westerwelle Startup Haus in the country’s capital of Kigali.

In 2018, the Westerwelle Startup Haus Kigali will open its doors to the country’s young entrepreneurs. They will receive access to all the services that are essential to their success. This will include training in the fields of business planning, marketing, and financial management as well as the exchange of knowledge with other founders and a co-working infrastructure.

Kigali is already known for its lively and innovative start-up sector. The Westerwelle Foundation seeks to foster the entrepreneurial spirit of Rwanda’s youth. In this way, the foundation wants to further economic development and create opportunities for its population.
