The world is changing at an unprecedented pace. This is fueled by technological and digital advancement. In Africa, like in other parts of the world, digital innovation is disrupting the traditional economy and creating new avenues for technological breakthroughs. For instance, drone technology has made it easy to deliver blood to remote villages in East Africa to save lives. Africa has the fastest growing mobile phone market and across the continent mobile money is used in daily transactions by millions of previously unbanked and underserved Africans. In Nigeria, teenage girls are taking on counterfeit drugs through a fake drug detector mobile app they created. It is clear that there is no shortage of ingenuity and talent on the continent.
