HeHe, Ltd.

HeHe_Square_BioIn 2010 Clarisse Iribagiza, with three college friends, founded HeHe, Ltd., as a cell phone and IT startup after a six-week summer course, taught by MIT students. As one of the first IT teams in Kigali to program mobile phones, they created feedback systems so ordinary cell phone users could access business and government information and give customer feedback. They won contracts immediately and earned $20M Rfrancs in two years. Clarisse and her growing team have given text and internet “voice” to thousands of teenage girls across Rwanda in a GirlHub network, funded by Nike. They pitched the biggest cell providers, presented at international conferences and inspire youth to see IT as a route to better jobs.
