Scaling the innovation economy and investing in Africa’s success
November 3 - November 4
The startup industry has always played on the fringe, often overlooked in its significance by key stakeholders. There has always been a healthy dose of skepticism. Yes, technology and innovation brought to the fore by startup entrepreneurs has a role to play, but how significant the impact? Yes, Africa’s startups have a possible social impact, but how significant will this impact be? Yes, Africa’s startups might be investible and could offer a financial return, but how interesting are they as an investment opportunity, and will they ever return?
This past year has shown more clearly than ever, that in today’s world, it is indeed the startups that shine brightest. The innovation, the technology-driven products, and services are part of the backbone for Africa’s most critical industries: financial services, food supply, healthcare, education, energy, transportation, and logistics.
