After the success of the program earlier this year, our partner ECOTEC Organizes another exciting program this September “Learning journey to Silicon Savannah, Nairobi”
Get to know an economically booming Africa. Silicon Savannah, where a huge demand meets a newly networked society. Digital Africa as a starting point for new contacts and future cooperation. We in Europe have not recognized this side of Africa yet – This Learning Journey will change that.
A few of us are aware of the high economic growth rates of African countries and their pioneering solutions. Africa is the first “mobile-only” continent. 60 % of its 1.2 billion population own a mobile phone which gives them access to their bank accounts, acts as a credit card, provides them with medical advice, gives them market information and a platform to sell what they produce – generally it is a tool to earn a living.
African countries have simply by-passed the stage of fixed-line telecommunication, a banking system with only physical outlets and access to the internet only via desktop computers in their economic development. Can you imagine the ingenuity and power of innovation that has been released without Basel III und Solvency II restrictions?
ECOTEC program is set-up in collaboration with LivingLab, a new-generation African think-tank. The program will show you what one of digital Africa’s hotspots has to offer. As well as organised company visits to M-Pesa, hotspot-institutions, iHub and Gearbox. Closer insights of the business environment through comprehensive meetings with local CEOs and other important decision makers. Additionally, arranged visits to explore important spots of the city and an exciting safari in Nairobi National Park.
