β€œYou came to MEST with a goal, a dream, a hope. It may have evolved, grown, shifted, or changed. That is okay. In fact, that is expected. And that is what this entrepreneurial journey is about. From your own life stories and those you heard during your time at MEST, a linear path is uncommon. And the winding, and waning, and ups, and downs are what shape you, your ideas, your businesses, and your ambitions β€” Class of 2022, you have accomplished so much. I’m always in awe of the graduates of the MEST Training Program. They are some of the smartest and most talented people I know”

For a period of 8 months, which is a historic first at MEST Africa, the Class of 2022 learned, unlearned, and relearned the practical aspects of building a software company while forging lifelong bonds and in the process, have built startups that are ready to hit the ground running.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Class of 2022πŸ‘πŸΏβ€¦

Join us in celebrating these amazing game changers and the lifelong bonds that have been formed through our Training Program as we cheer them on for the journey ahead!
