WHAT CAN TECHNOLOGY DO IN AFRICA: LOOKING AT THE TOOLS AND CHALLENGES
On the heels of Facebook CEO’s Mark Zuckerberg’s trip to Africa, some young African leaders and I sat to consider the question Zuckerberg is looking to answer: what can technology do in Africa?
On September 31st, 2016, I had the privilege of moderating a panel on technology in Africa for over a hundred young African leaders. Stars From All Nations, a by-and-for youth social enterprise, organized the second edition of Quantum Leap Career Fair for President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), West Africa. The event brought together 20+ companies in sectors such as education, technology, fashion, agribusiness, real estate and so on.
