The Westerwelle Foundation for International Understanding with headquarters in Berlin, Germany was established in 2013 by Dr. Guido Westerwelle, former German Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Ralph Dommermuth, CEO and Founder of United Internet AG. The foundation supports collaboration that transcends borders: between young entrepreneurs, executives and decision makers from around the world. The Foundation globally connects people and ideas and creates spaces for interaction and innovation.We believe that entrepreneurship plays a key role in a country’s economic development and can be a main driver of job creation and income growth. With the Westerwelle Startup Haus we aim to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Rwanda by providing a place where different stakeholders can meet, exchange ideas, collaborate and expand their skillsets. Through partnerships and in-house programs we will offer a variety of services, programs and events directly aimed at entrepreneurs and their needs to further grow their businesses.
