The emergence of home-grown Zimbabwean startups has become the norm. It is a refreshing trend to see because we must have our products and services. Celebrating such startups gives them publicity and also inspires the next startups as well. The operating environment has increasingly become digital the world over and Zimbabwe is no exception. Recently I saw a report by the Garner CIO Technology Executive Survey. The report stated that the area enjoying the highest attention by increasing investor funding is cyber or information security. That overall shows you that, in general, the area of ICT is thriving. The startup I am discussing here operates in that area and is well on course to becoming an industry leader in Zimbabwe.

Challenges They Are Facing
At the moment they are facing financial challenges in promoting and rolling out their new project, Pygentech C.A.S (Contactless Attendance System). They have finished designing and developing everything. They have even reached out to some private schools already that have accepted the project. However, they now need to fully roll it out and as a startup, they are lacking funds to do this. They desire to fully roll out the project by January 2022.
They also need assistance in reaching out to the government so that this project is implemented in every school and every student has an electronic ID. Furthermore, they would like to increase their number of developers. This would help them develop and work on more projects that can help improve technological advancement in Zimbabwe.
Partnership And Investment Prospects

An Important Note From Pygentech…
“Technology is the way to go. It is changing lives for the better. Let us embrace it and see how easy life can be with it. Our Zimbabwean education system lacks a great deal of technology. We need to change our mindset and embrace it to improve our children’s lives. The same applies to the health sector, mining sector and other industrial sectors, even in our homes. We believe technology makes life easy if implemented right.”
