We are pleased to announce the launch of IPKO Foundation, a local philanthropic institution.
After 10 years of work in the technology and civil society sector…first as Internet Project Kosovo then just IPKO and most recently as IPKO Institute…we have helped lead the dramatic shift in the prospects for Kosovo in the digital age. There increasing opportunities for Kosovar citizens to use technology to advance the aims of a prosperous and secure country. Business leaders, government officials, civil society actors are all harnessing new technologies to advance their work.
The Foundation will focus in the near term on seeding and supporting the development of the next generation of leaders with a digital vision for Kosovo. These young leaders may come from any sector or discipline but are united in their embrace of technology, the Internet and the information society. We will publicize, reward and support innovative work from any sector which incorporates the use of technology and portrays a digital vision for Kosovo. Finally, we will encourage others to seek out and reward innovation which catalyzes the further development of Kosovo.
Check back often over the coming weeks as we launch the Next Generation Innovators Scholarship program and our Innovation Awards event.
