Building a resilient innovative Africa

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering has historically been held at different cities around the African continent in collaboration with national and local governments, the private sector and our member hubs. While the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible for us to meet face to face, it now presents a powerful opportunity to be even more inclusive in participation.

Building a Resilient Innovative Africa

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected every sector of the continent’s economy and we must look inwards and collaborate to build a resistance that charges towards a glooming economic prediction to birth a thriving innovative economy in Africa. So it’s perfect that resilience is the overarching theme of this year’s conference as we convene to discuss “ Building a Resilient Innovative Africa”.

Now more than ever, building a resilient and innovative Africa through an integrated approach by engaged Africans who speak with one voice on innovation targeted at the actualization of the SDGs and Africa’s Agenda 2063 is paramount.
