As the technology continues to be the driving force in the world’s economy, there is need to identify that for maximum impact, some technology innovations and solutions need to be tailored to the target population. Although some of these innovations and solutions can cut across continents, there are some that need to be customized or redesigned to be useful to Africa as a continent. Many technology innovations like Mobile Money, Jumia, Mpesa, Ushahidi that have been designed to counter challenges faced by the African people have been very successful. These provide justifications to foster and promote the idea of Africa grown and/ or targeted Innovations and Technology to solve African challenges.


The main aim of this event is to create more awareness on emerging technologies and bringing ICT solutions and opportunities closer to the citizens of Africa while showcasing the potential and value addition that can be generated from the use and application of ICT as a tool towards socio-economic transformation.
