Microsoft is partnering with the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) to provide Moroccan student developers, startups, and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with training, resources, and technology.
Microsoft and UM6P will develop a curriculum to skill up Moroccan student developers to prepare them for the job market. Startups incubated at the UM6P startup campus will get access to technology, markets, and investors. Morocco-based startups will also get access to the Microsoft for Startup Founders Hub and the Microsoft Entrepreneurship for Positive Impact program.
The partnership, UM6P says “will provide multiple audiences with stronger access to technology and upskill startups and SMEs with valuable digitization skills“.
“Looking forward to the positive impact that we jointly can and will deliver to learners, jobseekers, SMEs, and startups“, says Salima Amira, Microsoft Morocco General Manager, speaking about the partnership.
“We are convinced that by increasing the number of qualified young professionals and empowering startups and SMEs to achieve sustainable growth, we will contribute positively to the growth of the digital economy in Morocco and across Africa.”Salima Amira
UM6P will also identify and enroll SMEs in need of digitization support as well as provide them with access to independent software vendors (ISVs) and Microsoft’s Airband initiative.
