AfricanBrains was established in 2009 to advance investment in education and promote technological innovations across the African continent. Since then, we have built up an established network of senior ranking government and industry partners and gained a solid reputation as an expert in this field.
Our annual Innovation Africa summit has become recognised as the leading education and ICT forum in Africa, bringing together an increasing number of ministers, senior government officials, private sector investors, leading educationalists and captains of industry.
Each event presents a high level platform of dialogue through presentations, exhibitions, sponsorship, round-table and one-to-one scheduled meetings. Over the past decade, each summit has been increasingly well received as productive partnerships have been created and over $400 million of new investment has been made in education programmes, new technologies and ICT infrastructure. Presented under the patronage of host governments, Innovation Africa has taken place in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Mozambique.
The last edition of the Innovation Africa summit took place in Ghana, 3-5 December 2019.
