Our goal is to create a new generation of agile digital leaders for the 21st century, connecting them to businesses across the globe.

Founded by Fred Swaniker, one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019, The ROOM is home to a lifelong, highly specialised community of skilled and early-stage talent that will power the future.

Tapping into Diverse Top Talent

We believe there are few things more pivotal to a company’s success today than its ability to find top talent, especially talent that can enable it to thrive in an age of accelerated digital transformation. By tapping into our diverse and abundant talent pool, we seek to address the global shortage of tech talent and help companies of all sizes adapt to the new world of work.

Connected to an Innovative Ecosystem

As part of the African Leadership Group, The ROOM is connected to an innovative ecosystem that has been successfully producing competitive talent and placing them with the world’s top employers over the last 17 years. Our mission is to transform the future of Africa by creating 2M job opportunities by 2030 for young African talent, and inspire the next generation of leaders.

Building Relationships

We thrive by building relationships with extraordinarily talented individuals from around the world while growing our community of elite talent throughout the African continent. After undergoing a rigorous training and vetting process through our training arm, ALX, our talent continues their professional development in a supportive programme of ongoing training and skills development to ensure they stay ahead of the curve.

Thanks to our acquisition of the Holberton School in Silicon Valley – with campuses across Latin America, South America, the Middle East, and beyond – we aim to create one of the largest global communities of new technology talent.
