MIT Inclusive Innovation Challenge Regional Celebration & Pitch Contest
The African Inclusive Innovation Summit 2019
We live in a world where technology runs the risk of reinforcing - and sometimes exacerbating - existing divides within societies. The first African Inclusive Innovation Summit explored how technology can facilitate new job opportunities and skills for Africa’s youth and engage disenfranchised groups, by highlighting tech that is creating economic opportunity for low- and middle-income earners across Africa.
The one-day event convened start-ups, investors, policy makers, and technology thought leaders in a series of keynotes, panels and workshops. The summit then culminated the Regional Finale Celebration of MIT’s Inclusive Innovation Challenge (IIC) 2019, MIT’s premier future of work prize. Read more about the challenge here.
Liquid Telecom is proud to serve as the Regional Collaborator for the IIC, and host for the Summit.
