A collaborative approach to innovation
African digital visionaries develop innovative solutions with significant impact on people’s lives and their environment. But on the road to breakthrough, they can face certain challenges.
Therefore, we aim to create an environment in which the full potential of African digital innovation can unfold – with all ecosystem stakeholders.
Wether you are a startup, innovation enabler or dealing with innovation policies, we believe only a collaborative and systemic approach can overcome the obstacles these digital visionaries are facing.
For you, we develop and implement our programmes in close collaboration with our private and public sector partners. The overall aim is to strengthen African ecosystems as a whole.
Together, we join forces to create a momentum for innovation and change by empowering and growing African #InnovationEcosystems.
