What is Redx Botswana

REDX brings together technical experts, innovators, researching institutions, implementation partners and corporate partners that will allow us to solve the most pressing challenges within our communities. REDX labs and clubs serve as gateways to the energy and creativity of innovators who are creating solutions to satisfy significant social needs. In collaboration with experts from several research centers, bright young innovators from all regions around the world have the opportunity to work closely with corporate executives, academics from institutions of higher learning, government officials and experienced mentors to imagine and develop solutions to solve major problems affecting citizens in resource-constrained areas and situations.

Redx Botswana is a club that dedicated its focus on working with the community, government, developers and innovators to bring about solutions to the community problems across the globe using modern technologies. We seek to provide a home to help technology startup companies develop, execute and make sustainable strategies for their business in a suitable, or conducive environment. Our aim is to set a solution based technology Centre with the aim of empowering young people in the world of today. We believe the internet has made the world a global village which in turn has given us a global economy whereby we are free to transact information, money, goods and services without the need of centralization. We have already created partnerships around the world with other technology companies.
