The African startup ecosystem is on the move. The continent’s entrepreneurship spirit projects an upward growth thanks to several strengths, including a growing number of engaging international investors, a huge population with access to technology, and a growing number of startup support organizations active in the ecosystem.
Despite all these, we cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that we still have a long way to go. Startups are still grappling with a myriad of challenges which as a result is still stifling the continent’s population who are hungry for entrepreneurship.
However, these challenges can be addressed not only by the government, but big multinationals can have an impact too. These companies can fill in the void not so much from a business perspective, but as an ecosystem enabler, helping entrepreneurs to have the tools, space and connections to transform their ideas into businesses.
Join us for our next MEET Session with Microsoft engineers and executives from Microsofts’ HQ in Redmond Seattle at Nairobi Garage // Pinetree plaza for an amazing AMA (Ask Me Anything) session where these team will have an open discussion with business owners and like-minded people.
In attendance will be Michael Fortin (Corporate Vice President), Henry Sanders (Corporate Vice President for Software Development and Core Operating System) and Dele Akinsade (Cloud Expansion Director at Microsoft ) and many more.
