SCOPE OF THE DIALOGUE, EXHIBITION AND AWARDS SCHEME
Africa is closely watched as the next big growth market – a description that has persisted for a while. There are many reasons for optimism: the African continent is home to some of the youngest populations in the world, it promises to be a major consumption market over the next three decades, and it is increasingly mobile phone enabled. An emerging digital ecosystem is particularly crucial as multiplier of that growth because access to smart phones and other devices enhances consumer information, networking, job-creating resources, and even financial inclusion (Harvard Business Review, 2019).
However, it is no news that with the fast advancement in technology, Africa still has a lot of work to do in terms of catching up. Nevertheless, African countries like Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, and South Africa have taken the lead in using technology to transform their countries. Many young tech innovators in Ghana are very skilled in hardware and software development yet they do not go farther than recognition from foreign and some local NGOs that provide support for incubation and acceleration for these innovators in Technology. But how far do Ghanaian tech products go in Ghana?
The access to funding and market for made in Ghana tech products still have a major gap that needs to be closed. There is also the need for the creation of a national agenda for tech and innovation in Ghana clearly spelt out devoid of partisan politics which requires all Ghanaian stakeholders to plug in and push the nation forward continuously in this regard. The curriculum of our secondary and tertiary institutions needs to be revised to suit the agenda of a clearly spelt out national agenda for tech and innovation to bring our youth to speed in tech advancement and improvement. Hence the summit will be a forum where innovators will not only network with each other, but they also will be exposed to the opportunity to contribute to the discourse of accelerating digital transformation in Ghana, with policy makers, and stakeholders
