DEMO Africa provides a platform for the most innovative technology products from companies across the African continent with the opportunity to launch before a global audience of investors, media, strategic buyers, C-level executives and other entrepreneurs.

Last year was the first time ever that a DEMO event was hosted on the African soil. In the mean time, the DEMO Africa 2012 alumni have raised an estimated US$ 8 million in investment and/or business value to date. And five out of the 40 companies that launched will be going to participate at DEMO Silicon Valley in October 2013!

This year DEMO Africa will again launch 40 of the most innovative start-ups in Africa and highlight some of the best new technology innovations from across the continent.

Now the second DEMO Africa 2013 start-up launch conference is coming up! It will be held on 24-25 October 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya. Over the next 2 months you can apply to be a part of DEMO Africa 2013!

10 Observations on Technology in Africa from Eric Schmidt of GoogleICT Works | ICT Works | My Africa is... | Scoop.it

After a week of business meetings in the cities of sub-Saharan Africa, Eric Schmidt posted a detailed list of observations. As he used to run Google and is still on their board, I’ll give him a bit more credit than others who might want to opine after a week’s exposure to the continent’s dynamism.

AfriLabs / The Network of African Innovation

AfriLabs / The Network of African Innovation | My Africa is... | Scoop.it

As a network organization, AfriLabs builds on a common vision to promote the growth and development of the African technology sector. As a community, we believe that by working together individual labs improve their chances of success, of generating more success stories and creating greater opportunities for their members.

Members of AfriLabs hubs have already come together successfully in their bid to implement the U.S. Department of State sponsored contest Apps4Africa. AfriLabs members have also worked to establish the Hive Colab as Kampala’s leading open collaboration space and successfully tendered to host the infoDev sponsored mobile apps lab in East Africa. AfriLabs by virtue of its on-the-ground engagement and local ownership is uniquely positioned to be a catalyst for the sector.

AfriLabs builds on these early successes and from the ground up, the entrepreneurs using the spaces and the labs that service them set the mandate. This ensures that Afrilabs remains grounded by the labs knee-deep in the business and builds on the experience in each of their localities. AfriLabs sets out with the following objectives:

Discover synergies between the labsShare best practices and help new organizations emergeEnhance visibility of the network and her actors, share success storiesOrganize networking events and facilitate other exchanges, both online and offlineSecure resources for the network by establishing a revolving fundGenerally promote developments in this space and explore other common interests.
