About FID

Foundation for Internet Development (FID) is a mechanism for maximising contributions made by ICT industry stakeholders towards socio-economic development and to enterprise and supplier development initiatives.

The primary function of this Foundation for Internet Development is to project match and facilitate donations made by companies within the ICT sector, be it a cash grant, loan, services and/or goods.

There are often various technical components required for a technology based business to work effectively and can prove quite costly for start-ups.

FID collaborates with multiple stakeholders bringing them together to reduce  the costs associated with development projects within the ICT sector. FID is 76% black owned and 58% black female owned, FID charges a nominal fee to beneficiaries for the donations received for the purpose of operating costs. 

We believe in creating powerful and sustainable partnerships to drive the processes and make a success of the projects we embark on.

FID is a member of ISPA and is compliant with the ISPA Code - https://ispa.org.za/code-of-conduct/
