Early May 2012, Kigali’s open innovation space dubbed KLab is set launch its operations at Rwanda’s ICT Park in Telecom House in Kacyiru.

kLab’s mission is to promote, facilitate, and support the development of innovative ICT solutions by nurturing a vivid community of entrepreneurs and mentors in Kigali.

KLab is set to open its doors to young, dynamic innovators and entrepreneurs who will then utilize its ICT infrastructures to develop solutions.

Beginning ICT nurturing and competitions, recently KLab held a competition among potential members and designers to develop its logo. A competition attended by several people via kLab’s Twitter account @klabrw, KIST Computer Science graduate Eugene Rwagasore who is a graphic designer at Nyaruka emerged as the winner.

Just as the government of Rwanda stipulates that the country should become an ICT hub in the near future, kLab’s goals are to support development of ICT in Rwanda.

kLab was developed with the support of Ministry of Information and Communications Technology in the Office of the President, Rwanda Development Board (RDB), JICA, Private Sector Federation and Carnegie-Mellon University Rwanda.
