Huawei has always believed that digital talent is the key driver to achieve digital transformation, solid economic growth, and better quality of life. Since 2008, Huawei has expanded a series of talent incubation programs on a large scale. Featured is the Seeds for the Future program, which sponsors scholarships and digital training courses for tens of thousands of people of all ages each year. The company also organizes and sponsors technology competitions, in order to create a playground for students to upgrade their knowledge, win prizes and socialize.
To date, Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program has incubated more than 2.2 million digital talents in more than 150 countries. Huawei ICT Academy also trains about 200,000 students every year. In 2021, Huawei announced that it has invested $150 million and plans to pour another $150 million into digital talent development by 2026, which is expected to help an additional 3 million people benefit greatly from the programs.
