ACTIVITIES | Digital Innovation Made in Africa

WE PROMOTE DIGITAL INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT.

Digital Innovation Made in Africa

Digital Innovation Made in Africa uncovers important, trend-setting solutions to development challenges on the continent. Make-IT constantly seeks to identify these innovative digital solutions.

Trendscouting for Innovative Digital Solutions

In its showcasing series ‘Digital Innovation Made in Africa’, Make-IT presents good practices from African tech entrepreneurs with a high potential for social impact. Together with partners from the Make-IT network, such as the World Summit Awards (WSA) and betterplace lab, Make-IT in Africa selects the most promising digital innovations from Sub-Saharan Africa in a joint selection process and publishes a series of best practice examples in a digital catalogue, as well as creating a touring exhibition for each catalogue.

The innovations are representative of numerous new developments that convey a completely new image of Africa: dynamic, modern, innovative, technical, and at the same time human – because behind every digital innovation is a team of founders who are keen to combine socially responsible entrepreneurship with digital modernisation.

So, join our trendscouting team and help us present outstanding African tech solutions to the world.

The showcases each consist of 20 different photographs related to technology companies from different African countries and from various industries such as energy, digital infrastructure, health, agriculture, education, (open) manufacturing and more.

The aim of the showcasing series is to:
