<p>The <strong>International Organization for Migration (IOM)</strong>‘s <em>Enterprise Development Fund-Innovation (EDF-i)</em> grants will target the tech sector and allow for new and startup tech companies to receive training, mentorship, and capital for innovative ideas.</p>
<p>In order to assess the current landscape of the tech sector, a market assessment specifically of tech sector businesses and needs was conducted in 2019.</p>
<p>The results suggest that salaries in the tech sector may be double the national average, and that there is potentially large demand for web design and e-commerce services.</p>
<p>Respondents reported poor command of the English language and logical thinking, a lack of technical expertise, and relevant academic backgrounds as skill barriers in finding qualified human resources.</p>
<p>These findings support labour market assessment findings in IOM’s communities of intervention, where requests for trainings in English and IT among youth represent easily actionable programming.</p>
