Event Description

MIT AFRICA INNOVATE CONFERENCE 2020

BOOSTING AFRICA'S DIGITAL ECONOMY

2020 is an important year for the MIT AIC: now in its 10th year, the 2020 AIC will celebrate a decade of MIT African endeavors, innovations, and breakthroughs with an impact on the continent and beyond.

Africa is transforming. In Kenya, 73% of the population has a mobile money account; in Rwanda, autonomous drones are delivering life-saving blood supplies and vaccines to inaccessible hospitals; in Nigeria, coding schools are training the next generation of software developers; and in Côte d'Ivoire, households are harnessing the power of solar energy in areas previously unreached by the national grid. All of these innovations were made possible by improving access to mobile connectivity and data.

While early successes exist, Africa's digital transformation is only beginning. Building a solid digital economy will require a focus in key areas such as digital infrastructure, digital literacy and skills, digital financial services, and digital entrepreneurship and innovation.

The 10th Annual MIT Africa Innovate Conference – our milestone anniversary – ​will explore the future of Africa's digital economy and demonstrate how entrepreneurs, corporations, and governments are leveraging technology across sectors to benefit society in its entirety.

​Stay tuned⁠, more information on speakers will be released soon. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at mit.aic.ch[email protected]
