U.S. Investments Surge For African Tech Entrepreneurs

Posted: Updated:

From the largest technology companies to early stage investors, American high tech companies and venture capitalists are increasingly supporting startups across the African continent. Whether it’s the 16 mobile apps in Botswana that Jim Goetz mentioned in his take on Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp; the launch of IBM’s new innovation centers in Lagos and Casablanca; Microsoft’s partnership with three incubators in Africa, or the African Development Bank’s recent summit on how to engage the private sector more effectively, African entrepreneurship is on investors minds. In fact, 2013 was the most active year for technology investment on the continent, according to data from CrunchBase. http://techcrunch.com/2014/02/23/u-s-investments-surge-for-african-tech-entrepreneurs/
