coding & startup school for kids and teens

We equip children to launch startups before they turn 18

We teach coding and entrepreneurship skills to children aged 5-18, positioning them to launch innovative businesses as teenagers.

Lowering the age of innovators in Africa

We have succeeded in helping children from the age of 12 launch innovative products. We believe we can democratize this across Africa.

About EarlyFounders labs

Inspiring Creativity and Innovation for Africa and the World

EarlyFounders is more than a coding school. We are redefining learning, entrepreneurship and creativity in Africa. We recognize that talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not. Our mission is to make it possible for every African child to achieve their true potential and global competitiveness by learning the needed skills to give expressions to their innovative ideas, irrespective of where they are on the continent.

We see a future where African children are leading the way in innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.

The Problem

The Problem we exist to solve

The future of Africa is its children.

Africa is still the poorest country in the world. 23 of the 28 poorest countries in the world are in Africa.

We want to accelerate development, growth, and prosperity in Africa by channeling tech and entrepreneurial education among children, empowering them with the skills, coaching, and support to launch businesses and startups as teenagers.

Our Programs for Children

What we’re doing to inspire and catalyze innovation and creativity for children from age five

Computer Programming

We teach the foundations of computer programming to children from age 5, in schools, online or in clubs

Financial Intelligence

We teach basic financial intelligence, helping children to become money wise and smarter

Problem-Solving & Entreprenership

Our startup school teaches Design Thinking, problem-solving and how to turn problems and solutions into businesses.

Startup Incubator

When our students launch products or build business apps, we admit them into an incubator where we give them extra coaching and mentorship to grow and scale

Coding is a tool for expressing creativity, a potential for building a new future

We believe everyone should get a little exposure to coding because it really forces children to think in a different way, better than their peers. It’s a skill that you can apply in life in general, whether you end up a programmer or not.

OUR Curriculum

Pathway to Innovation

Pathway to Innovation is our signature curriculum and learning pathway that equips children from the age of five with problem-solving, computer programming and entrepreneurship skills.

It is a combination of lessons, courses and programs which can be implemented as part of the regular school curriculum, run as an after-school program or delivered independently through private tutoring or home-schooling.

The curriculum is broken into four levels and can be completed by students over a period of 2 to 5 years, without requiring students to drop out of school, depending on the implementation model. It can be integrated into Primary and Secondary education curriculum through age appropriate subjects and courses.

The Educator Library

Schools, clubs, organizations or foundations interested in educating children and teenagers with skills in computer programming and entrepreneurship do not need to reinvent the wheel.

We provide a comprehensive educator library containing all the resources and support that will be needed to deliver the Pathway to Innovation curriculum effectively, even when you do not currently have highly trained teachers.

The Educator Library comes with the following:
  • Curriculum map (how the entire curriculum connects)
  • Suggested lesson sequence for students of different ages
  • Lesson plans for each lesson with learning outcomes
  • Lesson videos for each topic (which teachers can play in class)
  • Lesson slides for each topic (for teachers to use in class)
  • Question bank with questions and answers for each topic to make assessments easy
  • Supporting resources for each topic (extra videos and links for added learning)
  • Ideas for projects and activities to drive home all hands-on lessons
  • Access to teacher training and certification courses for teachers and team members
  • Special discounted rate on the purchase of “Early Coding for Kids” textbooks (the student textbooks that accompany different levels of the curriculum)
  • Access to all upgrades on content, videos, curriculum, slides and learning materials
  • Onboarding coaching program for the implementing team on how to use the library
  • Access to free consulting and coaching throughout the duration of your licence
