So you've got a great idea, and think you could create an amazing startup.

However, before you dive in, here are 5 suggestions to weigh up whether it's worth it, or as we like to say "is the juice worth the squeeze?":

1) Is the problem worth solving (from a time, money, effort etc perspective).

2) Is there a big enough market for your solution?

3) Are you the right person or team to solve the problem?

4) Do you know the customer and market better than anyone?

5) Are you passionate enough about solving the problem?

Hacklab Women's Mandate

“Gender equality and economic empowerment for women and girls, is also a catalyst for achieving the other sustainable development goals.”
- Foster Awintiti Akugri

The world has a decade left to turn this promise into action. The past decades have seen important progress for women and girls. However, change has been uneven though incremental.

Change is coming at a pace that is too slow for the women and girls whose lives depend on it.

Our mandate as an initiative of the Hacklab Foundation is to impact over 400,000 women in Africa by 2030.

We entreat you to join us achieve this feat.

Empowering women, building capacities, and bridging the equity and equality gap in the areas of “STEAM” is our focus.

Hacklab Ghana Developer Census 2020 is the first and most comprehensive survey of people who code in Ghana. In 2020, Hacklab Research fielded a survey covering everything from developers’ favorite technologies to their job preferences. Today, we are excited to share with you the report of that project.

This marks the first of annual surveys to be published. This maiden edition witnessed the participation of 272 developers who took the 20-minute survey earlier between November - December 2020.

Despite our survey’s reach and capacity for informing valuable conclusions, we acknowledge that our results don’t represent everyone in the Ghana developer community evenly. We have further work to do to make the Hacklab Ghana Developer Census 2020 a more inclusive, diverse platform, and a reflection in the community at large.

At the Hacklab Foundation, we are committed to building on the steps we have taken and improving the coverage, insights and beyond in the coming years to better improve the support and interventions needed to give developers a more enabling ecosystem to thrive. Some of these survey’s results directly guide those efforts. To address the characteristics of our data, be sure to check out where we summarize results by developer persona (Professional Developer, Student) or gender.

We looked at breakdowns by demographics throughout our analysis and its reflection of the distribution of talents. Dive into the full report at https://hacklabfoundation.org/Developer-Census-2020-Report.html

This maiden edition could not have been successful without the contributions of Twitter and CorrelAid.

Preparing The Youth For Future Jobs

The Hacklab Foundation is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Ghana with focus on preparing the youth for future digital jobs through technology education and skills development.

We achieve this through bootcamps, hackathons, mentorship and coaching, internships, digital skills training and job placement. Our footprints currently span across Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone and India.

Since our inception in 2015, we have directly impacted over 10,000 people, organized hackathons, robotics and coding bootcamps for kids between the ages of 7yrs - 13yrs, supported 500+ women in tech, 300+ youth were placed in jobs and 250+ youth were placed in internships. Through our partnership with IBM, we launched the Ghana National Digital Skills Training Program in November 2018, with a goal to reach a 100,000 people by 2021

We believe that creating an equal platform for everyone, irrespective of race, gender, social class, and physical limitations will allow for a fair chance to compete for the same opportunity. This has been at the core of our initiatives.
