How Mobile Technology is Transforming Africa

A summary of slides from my presentation done at Mobile Innovations @ OCE Discovery event in Toronto on 27/5/2013. 

Featured presentation reveals how mobile technology is transforming the now second largest mobile market in the world, and the trend towards local entrepreneurs creating and implementing innovative solutions to solve local problems. 

Understand how solar and wind energy are already transforming communities and powering mobile and 3G network infrastructure, learn about low-tech SMS solutions empowering farmers in agriculture, and how greenfield opportunities in music distribution are streamed through mobile. Watch 3-D Printing solutions that are already applied to reduce diseases in Africa, and get inspired by a new generation of entrepreneurs changing the way children are educated for the future. 

Mobile technology is a key driver for future economic growth on the continent, and Africa may well be on its way to becoming a hub of technology innovation for the whole planet, despite its many infrastructural challenges.
