Innovation Africa 2013

Connecting Industry to Government & Civil Society
15-17 October, Gaborone, Botswana

We are delighted at the success of Innovation Africa 2013 organised under the patronage of the Botswana Ministry of Education & Skills Development.

“The conversation is at a level where ministers, permanent secretaries of education and deputy directors of ICT are able to interact and take deliberate action immediately.”
Mr Suresh Subramanian – Vice President & General Manager Industry Solutions, Hewlett Packard

“It’s a chance to meet the senior education representatives from 8 countries in 1 room. You can do in 2 days what would take weeks to do visiting each country one after the other.”
Mr Andrew Whiteley – Managing Director, Eduteq Limited

“What I feel this conference has done is it has brought to meetings what mass production has brought to the automotive industry.”
Mr Fasil Bekele – Director, Public Private Alliances, Microsoft Middle East & Africa

“Through Innovation Africa we have been able to create a lot of public/private partnerships. Governments within Africa are using our technology and are increasing teaching productivity through the contacts we have made.”
Mr Richard Addey – Africa Area Manager, SMART Technologies

“We believe strongly that, with your cooperation, we can bring our technology and innovation into this region of the world. We appreciate the organisation and what you are doing for us.”
