NTT and its subsidiary Dimension Data are partnering with Red Bull Basement to support entrepreneurs. As the official technology partner of Red Bull Basement’s third year, NTT’s Cloud Communications Division will support live virtual workshops for university students to innovate for good. Kenyan universities taking part are the University of Nairobi, Jomo Kenya University of Agriculture (JKUAT), Kenyatta University, United States International University (USIU), Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), Mount Kenya University (MKU), Strathmore and Daystar. 

NTT will mentor the students throughout the competition and judge the entries at the final Global Workshop, where a winning team will be announced. Dimension Data will facilitate the first three phases including co-hosting launchpads, judging the entries at the local level and offering mentorship in the development phase in Kenya and South Africa.

The programme encourages the next generation of diverse thinking and innovation and is based on finding solutions to the world’s problems using technology to create positive change.
