Corner Stone Africa Ltd (COSTA) was founded by a team of professionals from the East African Region with diverse experiences. They were motivated by concern of the serious gap in workforce skills not only in Rwanda but also in the region.

The founders of COSTA were further moved by the desire to give back to the community part of their experience. “We were born of and developed by this community; we find it our duty to give back”.

COSTA facilitates organizations to identify their challenges and helps them to craft industry-led and innovative solutions that will enable them to keep ahead of their competition. We also offer follow-on support to insure sustainability of the solutions.
