Africa has great potential for #technology #technovation

the improvement in telecommunications networks across Africa has made the sharing of ideas and information easier. Africa has great potential as those previously remote and inaccessible are now very accessible to the financial sector, telecomminications sector and agriculture. It is imperative that technovators leave their comfortable offices and interact with the so called 'backward' people who are yet to touch a smart phone in their hand and yet are eager to have one, people who have never accessed clean and safe drinking water but are calling for it, people that have never had a bank account but are eager to open a savings account, people who have relied on primitive 'slash and burn' farming methods with just the hoe as a tool and have now awoken to the availability of sophisticate farming technology. All these are gaps that the technovators must be looking at solving in Africa.
