Announcement of the winners of the Africa Tech Week Awards 2021
The opportunity for the African continent
The African continent has a creative advantage in that it is not burdened with legacies that could be problematic in other parts of the world. African countries and organizations have the capacity to develop and build from scratch, which enables them to be the first to adopt disruptive technologies.
“As a unified entity, we hold the key to unlocking Africa’s potential,” said Ralf Fletcher, CEO of Topco Media. “As the next big growth market, it is essential that multinationals partner with Africa for several valid reasons. One thing is clear: the events of the past year have impacted technology as much as every other aspect of our lives. Ten years from now, we will be able to tell the great story of how the digital transformation happened and was catalyzed.
Africa’s ingenuity and perseverance are alive and well. However, if we are to keep our economies afloat, we must be responsible in our daily interactions with consumers.
