President João Lourenço unveils digital incubator for companies

The President of the Republic, His Excellency João Lourenço, today (Tuesday), inaugurated the facilities of Digital.ao, where the Technological Incubator will operate, an infrastructure that aims to help transform innovative ideas from young Angolans into productive and sustainable businesses (companies).

After the formal cutting of the ribbon, the Head of State, accompanied by members of the Government, watched an institutional video of the project, visited some service areas of the infrastructure and received information about the functioning of the installed equipment.

The facility is located in the CTT area, in the urban district of Rangel, in the municipality of Luanda, and the technological incubator also aims to promote small, medium and large companies.

Digital.ao is budgeted at around 1.3 billion kwanzas, and the construction of the infrastructure started in 2016, but, for objective reasons, was paralyzed, having resumed in 2019.

Financed with ordinary resources from the treasury and with the sector’s own resources, the construction of Digital.ao also had the support of partners such as Huawei, Afrione, the African Development Bank and the World Bank.

Digital.ao has an infrastructure made up of two buildings. The first one has three floors and includes multifunctional spaces, a videoconference room, a computer repair laboratory and a software factory.

The second building, with one floor, is aimed at technical and professional qualifications, has, in addition to other compartments, rooms specializing in repair, maintenance and configuration of computers, printers and mobile phones, as well as analog, digital and robotics electronics.
