Africa Innovation Summit II Call for Application Launched Across Africa For Innovations Addressing Continent’s Challenges
April 14, 2018
Dr. Olugbenga Adesida, co-Director of AIS, indicated that “AIS provides more than a robust and dynamic platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue, but rather a catalyst for “Made in Africa” innovations that are already addressing the challenges faced on the continent, but need assistance to take root and scale across the continent. ”
The AIS has partnered with Enterpriseroom, a transformation consultancy specializing in starting, sustaining, and accelerating businesses, to drive the sourcing and selection of up to 50 Innovations across the continent, to be showcased at the Summit. The CEO of Entepriseroom, Tracey Webster, said “We are delighted to partner with the AIS and believe the innovations selected to be showcased at the Summit will have a unique opportunity to engage the right stakeholders when it comes to discussing and unlocking blockages in the eco-system that are preventing solutions from going to scale, or ideas being commercialized.” AIS firmly believes that the solutions are in Africa and innovators need to be at the table architecting a conducive environment for Innovation to thrive in Africa.
AIS is therefore calling all African innovators to apply for this unique opportunity. The innovators selected must meet the following criteria:
* Know or have an innovative idea or solution that can drive positive change in Africa and;
* The solution must be at a critical stage: either ready to commercilaise or ready to scale.
The identified innovators will meet influential people, policy makers, and investors who are ready to discuss Africa’s development challenges and ways to solve them. They will also have the opportunity to interact with
like-minded African innovators and change agents who are driving a new era of change in Africa.
Applications and additional information can be found on the AIS website: http://www.africainnovationsummit.com/innovation-track. Applications close Midnight Sunday 15 April 2018 (CAT).
