The 4IR Message
How does Africa leverage indigenous innovation and relevant technology to boost and improve economic development? In which ways can the continent's youth dividend and professional workforce be gainfully engaged with the Future of Work?
With the ratification of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), what are the true opportunities for a Single African Market and how are countries negotiating to facilitate, foster & amplify local products and services of Africans for Africans on the continent to scale?
The effort to realize the continent's economic potential from raw materials and a growing youthful population needs to be deliberate, strategic and sift through which aspects of converging technology, industry 4.0 or the 4th industrial revolution can be prioritized and leveraged for a sustainable impact for the continent's prosperity.
Our promise is to interrogate, research, analyze and execute on collaborative pathways in the developmental wellbeing commitments to Africa's citizens.
We are collaborating with relevant stakeholders to build a pan-African ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship. Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org | @4irafrica_
