Women in Tech

TeamApt, one of Nigeria’s leading Fintechs providing a financial platform for businesses is now accepting applications for its 2022 Women in Tech internship program tagged ‘The Apt 5’.

It said in a statement that this year, it is leveraging the Ingressive for Good community to ensure access to the opportunity for as many women as possible.

With more than 150,000 businesses and 16 million end users in Nigeria using TeamApt’s products Moniepoint and Monnify every month, the company restated commitment to ensuring access and growth for the underserved.

This Women in Tech paid internship program is in alignment with its mission to provide financial happiness for all by offering the tools they need to succeed, according to the statement obtained by Business Metrics.

In line with their mission to increase the earning power of African youths through tech training and the power of work, Ingressive for Good has built a community of over 100,000 individuals, training 80,000 and driving women-focused tech training for African youths.

TeamApt explained that their foundations in the African tech ecosystem is what made the partnership for this internship program possible.

Technology is at the centre of business and everyday life and to build and maintain these applications, a myriad of talents are needed. As everyone is reminded to break the bias this Women’s Day, opportunities like these are important for the industry and economy at large.

“We are committed to building the tech talent pipeline across Africa and have partnered with a number of universities to facilitate this, but it’s not lost on us that the tech industry is still vastly male-dominated. This programme ensures that more women have access to the kind of opportunities that can fast-track their careers in technology. Some interns from the last cohort are already full-time engineers with the organisation now and that’s the exact pace of growth this enables.” said Edidiong Uwemakpan, Director of Brand and Corporate Communications at TeamApt.
