I’m a tech fellow at Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST).
It’s basically a startup school where students from Africa take on a two year course:
Year 1: Learn business, communication & tech skills
Year 2: Build and startup and pitch to enter an incubator (on site)
I’ve been teaching here for 2 months and will teach until June. I’m looking for a Meteor guy to be one of the new teachers who will start next year.
It’s an awesome chance to live in Africa and use your nerdy code skills to teach and change lives. Life is made pretty easy for us with flights and accommodation provided and monthly $1000 stipend. There is also enough time to keep up with freelance work / side-projects (in my experience).
I wrote a brief blog about my experiences.
If you’re love Meteor and want an live-changing experience, please consider coming to MEST. Feel free to write me ben[at]meteofactory.io or via the site.
