Rwandan-based consulting and investment firm Karisimbi Partners is proud to announce the creation of the Karisimbi Fellows program. The Fellows program is intended to provide opportunities for professionals who have recently completed an undergraduate or graduate degree in business administration or a related field to get hands on experience partnering with businesses in the developing world. Karisimbi Fellows will have the unique opportunity to work directly with management teams and other stakeholders in Rwanda and the East African region to increase capacity and effectiveness and in so doing to assist in the long term development of the communities in which those businesses operate. The Karisimbi Fellow is provided a unique platform to assist in developing the private sector through the strong reputation and partnerships built by Karisimbi Partners over years of operating in East Africa.
Rolling start dates for selected candidates begin Fall 2013. Housing and business-related expenses will be covered by Karisimbi Partners and a stipend will also be provided to the Fellow to offset some costs of living.
