In a few short years, African nations have already made the leap from responsive adaptation of imported technology to pioneering innovation across a host of digital service sectors such as finance, agriculture, education, and health.



The ascent of the ‘Silicon Savannah’ is evident from the emergence of hundreds of innovation hubs, technology related enterprises, and the heavy infusion of venture capital across the continent.

As the experience with the African Union Convention on Cybersecurity and Data Protection shows, the African Union (AU) allows the continent to put forth an African proposition on the digital space. Additionally, the continent has made great strides towards digital integration with the advent of the One Area Network initiative. The massive rollout of fibreoptic cables across the length and breadth of the region has catalysed the creation of scores of young tech entrepreneurs, who are eager to reap digital dividends.


Indeed, it is only a matter of time before the world’s most important innovations flow out of Africa. Structured around the broad themes of connectivity, digital inclusion, security, innovation and trade.
