Simplon and Kinshasa Digital in the Democratic Republic of Congo
A giant in Central Africa rich in raw materials, the DRC now wants to rely on digital technology as an engine of growth and employment to accelerate the country's economic development.
At a time when digital technology promises to be an important lever for the development of the Democratic Republic of Congo, human capital is essential to support public institutions and private companies in their digital transformation. Faced with these realities, the Kinshasa Digital Academy offers practical training solutions in line with the needs of companies and public institutions.
