AddisCoder students are current high schoolers who come from all across Ethiopia for 4 weeks to take the course in Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa. In 2011 in the first edition of the course, students registered themselves for the course via e-mail. Since 2016, the program has grown much larger into a collaborative effort between AddisCoder Inc. and the Meles Zenawi Foundation, attracting top students from all regions of Ethiopia with help from the Ministry of Education. <p></p> The students taking the course are very strong performers in mathematics and basic sciences, often ranking amongst the top handful of students in all of Ethiopia on national exams (note: Ethiopia has a population of over 100 million!), though in the vast majority of cases have little to no experience with programming. <p></p> <mark>AddisCoder exposes these bright students to the field of computer science by teaching the basics of Python programming, as well as fundamental ideas in algorithm design and analysis. AddisCoder covers advanced topics usually not taught until at least the second year of university studies: order of growth, recurrences, induction, memoization, greedy algorithms, graph algorithms, sorting, and numerical algorithms.</mark> The course is very hands-on: class meets for 8-8.5 hours per day, including a lunch break in the middle, with only roughly 90-120 minutes devoted to lecture. The rest of a class day is devoted to hands-on lab exercises in which students solve problems by writing code. <p></p> A number of students have gone on to be highly successful after completing the AddisCoder program (see the alumni section below)

We try our best to discover amazing, out-of-the-box, disruptive, highly innovative, scalable, and potentially transformational ideas from youth interested in Ethiopian agribusiness. Twice a year, we run a national competition and accept a small number of startups (5 to 10) into our on-site 4-month program based in Addis Ababa. Our batches run February to May (Belg Batch) and August to November (Kiremt batch). <p></p> We require founder teams of 2 to 3 entrepreneurs because we believe that startups have a better chance of success with more than one founder. We also think that it takes more than training and money to create a great company. So, we take a holistic approach to the support we give to our startups. Over four super-intense months in our on-site incubator program in Addis Abab, we do several things: <p></p> - we provide our startup teams with a place to work alongside other talented and motivated entrepreneurs <br> - we provide training on business skills (“hard” skills) and “soft” skills like leadership, emotional intelligence, ethics, teambuilding, among others we coach our startups to get from an idea to a narrative to a value proposition to a feasibility study to a business model to an operational business plan to a branding and marketing strategy to investment needs and projections to pitch readiness <br> - we support our startups as they register their companies, develop websites, build prototypes, recruit talent, and go through setup activities <br> - we link our startups to top executives and heads of industry (the Lions) <br> - we facilitate access to business support service providers, and <br> - we match our startups founders to one-on-one mentoring with business professionals for 12 months. <p></p> In addition to the above, we invest seed funds into each startup we incubate. So we only accept startups with ideas we believe have high potential and are investable and have a founder team that we consider to be emotionally intelligent, incredibly hungry for success, and humble enough to take advice and criticism. Most importantly, we look for founders who have the grit, determination, integrity, and passion to execute and to stay through the rocky road of entrepreneurship. We believe that entrepreneurs are born, not made. Our job is to provide the fertile ground where truly innovative, exceptional entrepreneurs can thrive and grow great companies.

Nowadays, growth opportunities in the IT sector are enormous. While in the developed countries IT professionals are as numerous as all types of engineers combined, in Ethiopia they are only a small fraction of the total number of engineers. We are convinced that a very good way of kick starting the IT market in Ethiopia is via getting engaged in outsourcing. <p></p>That is why AAiT is attempting to provide three new curricula in the UG and five in PG programs that aim at qualifying students who can be engaged in outsourcing activities. Many developing countries have shown that this is not only a profitable route, but it is a very important seed contributing significantly to the industrialization of the country. A very good example of such countries is Vietnam <p></p> <mark>The AAiT is currently planning to produce graduates who are competent and productive in the current dynamic information technology world.
