Digitization Studio

This fully-equipped studio is available for entrepreneurs to take and edit photos of products. It includes state of the art equipment, including lighting, a green screen and rotating platform.

Business Center

The Business Center has a training room, meeting room and a large co-working space available for members and entrepreneurs to book, and is a hub for e-commerce learning. Internet and office supplies are available too.

Trader Lab

This 3D printing farm will contain a first series of 20 Prusa Mini+ 3D printers, which will allow entrepreneurs to design and create their own products, with state-of-the-art manufacturing innovation at their fingertips.

Packaging Machine

Access to cost effective and available packaging is a big problem in Rwanda. This packaging machine laser cuts already available cardboard into perfect-fit boxes, saving on costs, reducing the impact on the environment, while enhancing the attractiveness of products.

Automation

Automation tools are at the heart of the ECC, from a Robotic 6 Axis Arm to web automation. Such technology allows for better competitivity, faster processing times and a higher level of customer service.

E-bikes

A fleet of e-bikes and a delivery drone will be studied, so that local logistics companies can mutually deploy environmentally-friendly delivery using innovative new solutions.
