Earning the right
LADS AFRICA is a registered commercial company which operates under the Technology Transfer, Commercialization & Licensing Centre (TTLCC) of the Harare Institute of Technology (HIT). The mission of LADS AFRICA is to provide solutions that facilitate the ease of doing business in local authorities
But how do we do it? We like to call it earning the right, walking the talk and playing the game …
Initially LADS started as a pilot project funded by the Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF). CLGF-Zimbabwe is an EU funded NGO whose mandate is to support the development of local authorities. In 2017 CLGF engaged HIT to develop a prototype database for the local authorities they supported. The prototype was well received and it was deployed in eight different local authorities in 2017 alone. The project was later put under the Technology Transfer Licensing and Commercialisation Centre (TTLCC).However due to the growing demand from local authorities, the need for such a solution and the great potential the project exhibited, HIT decided to register a company which fully focus on the project and provide all the ICT services required by local authorities, hence the birth of LADS Africa Private Limited.
Take the right step,
do the big things.
