Footprint to Africa: How Can We Break Down Barriers to Accelerate African Innovation?

Developing innovation ecosystems is part of that journey towards building a knowledge-based economy. Niche incubator hubs, Makers Spaces, and Hybrid-Hubs provide much more than capital. Support services teach individuals how to grow a profitable business and how to make the right decisions. They vary in how they operate and what they offer young innovators, but the common thread is a commitment to creating an environment that steers entrepreneurs in the right direction through operational guidance and the provision of an entrepreneurial, creative space.
For example, in Angola, I created the country’s first hybrid innovation hub, Fábrica de Sabão, in the heart of the largest slum in Angola.
