We continue to implement initiatives for the development of entrepreneurship and training of the workforce in the field of ICT. We are great together!
During March, we signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the Executive Committee of ATU Gagauzia which will help the region to attract more investment in education and training of the local workforce in ICT, encouraging businesses based on innovation, stimulating competitiveness in the local business environment, and creating a center of excellence in the field.
We, also, signed a Memorandum with ODIMM for implementing the “Digital Upgrade” training program, within Startup Academy. The second edition of “Digital Upgrade”, held in March 2021, provides digital education to about 100 entrepreneurs, guiding their process of migrating business to online with the help of mentors with experience in marketing, communication, IT, logistics, etc.
We supported sustainable agriculture, encouraging digitization, smart solutions, and involvement of innovative technology in the field of agriculture during the AgTech Conference organized in partnership with Agrobiznes, within the National Program “Startup Moldova” Digital Impact – a platform that encourages sectoral collaboration between traditional and IT industries.
We contributed to workforce development by launching the Startup Academy UNI – Tech Entrepreneurship for Moldovan students and “Oracle for Universities” initiative that provides Java Fundamentals and SQL Fundamentals courses to professors and students. We ensured better employment opportunities through several courses launched and delivered via Tekwill Academy, as JAVA FUNDAMENTALS COURSE, MANUAL QUALITY ASSURANCE COURSE, SQL FUNDAMENTALS, and webinars.
We opened our virtual doors to another 157 schools from Moldova for the Tekwill in Every School optional courses and invited the first batch of participants of the Graphic Design course to test their skills within “Tekwill Junior Ambassadors” contest.
We enhanced the IT entrepreneurship community and supported Tech Women and FabLab Chisinau initiatives via webinars, meetups, and master classes…
And we celebrated with everyone four years of Tekwill – a perfect synergy between the Moldovan Government, multinational (Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, PMI, etc.) and local private industry, academia, and donors. Initially, the project aimed to create a place where people connect with ideas, resources, science, and industry to enhance excellence in information technology, implemented by the National Association of ICT Companies (ATIC). The Center quickly turned into a huge hub with many successful spaces, events, and programs. Key programs such as Tekwill Academy, Tekwill Academy Kids, Tekwill in Every School, Startup Moldova were born along the way in response to certain needs and challenges of the sector. The project attracted many students, IT specialists and entrepreneurs, eager to develop their skills and business according to the current requirements of the ICT sector.
On the fourth anniversary of its activity, TEKWILL is committed to bringing information technology closer to people in all regions of Moldova.
