Mehemed Bougsea has worked as a strategy consultant to GIZ and the German, Tunisian and Libyan governments, specialising in the socio-economic development of youth in regions with elevated unemployment rates across Africa. He is the co-founder of Think.it, a platform preparing North African computer science graduates to succeed on the global labour market.
Prior to Think.iT, Mehemed built and led the country office of Kiron Open Higher Education in Turkey. He is a fellow of the Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School and holds an MPA in Development from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs.
Think.iT is on a mission to activate the largest market of untapped brilliance and empower extraordinary minds to shape the future of technology. We live in an emerging world where mind power and human capability are the driving forces of the planet, yet one of the greatest source of these forces, the African continent, has largely remained unconsidered.
The newly evolving human cloud has the potential to profoundly change the nature of work, and we are at the forefront of this seismic shift. That’s why we direct our attention, resources and passion to hubs of brilliance, in order to upscale an entire generation of extraordinarily bright minds.
Think.iT is enabling disadvantaged North African computer science graduates to unleash their potential and become leading technologists. Through an immersive boot camp, we prepare them to thrive on agile distributed teams and succeed in tomorrow’s global labour market, before we connect them with leading tech companies around the world.
