OUR SERVICES
Learning Expedition (LEx)
The figurative expression of “innovation safari” for LEx depicts the concept well but does not really do justice to this journey to the core of African Tech ecosystems! Learning Expeditions will take you to the main innovation spaces, introduce your delegates to key innovation players of your industry and explain the mechanics of how the local innovative scene ticks. With insights on trends, loca challenges and opportunities, it is the most efficient way to understand, shape and deliver both impact and economic success within Africa.
Investments & Developments
Local partnerships and investments are valuable options for exported growth and impact, but finding the right partners is only the first step (reports and learning expeditions are ideal catalysers). WITHIN.AFRICA assists you in defining and finding the best available options to maximise your success. By bringing our rounded understanding of innovation features and our network together we help you realize and pilot your African ambitions.
Event support
Events represent an effective way to position and promote your organisation in Africa. With our extensive experience in this field, we can provide support in terms of organisation, content and network for your next African event.

AFRICA’S TECH VIBRANCY

With numerous tech-savvy cities, youth and appetite for growth, Africa is becoming the next economic powerhouse of the coming years. The continent’s tech vibrancy has spurred a proliferation of start-ups, accelerators, incubators and co-creation spaces across the continent.
