COVID-19 has triggered an unprecedented demand for digital innovations and an acceleration of the digital economy. Join us on July 29th, 12:00 pm GMT on CNBC Africa, DSTV Channel 410, for a live webinar in which a panel of thought leaders and experts will discuss ‘Why Investing in Digital Infrastructure Post-COVID-19 is Critical to Africa’s Economic Recovery’.
During the session, speakers will share their experience and thoughts on how such opportunities can be turned into viable projects that will make Africa more resilient during and after this crisis, while driving economic growth.
The panel discussion will be followed by the unveiling of the finalists of Africa50’s first Innovation Challenge which focused on sourcing solutions to help address last mile/ rural internet connectivity in Africa. The winning solutions will receive cash prizes and/or will be considered for project development funding. Projects will be rolled-out in Rwanda as the pilot country, with the objective to scale to other countries in Africa.
