“Never before has technology been a more powerful enabler for our continent, and we are excited, through our partnership with AfricaCom, to engage with, and learn from some of the greatest minds in our industry. We remain relentless supporters of the opportunities that disruptive innovation enables for the people of Africa,” says Judith Middleton, CEO of DUO Marketing and Communications.
‘Supporting disruption, enabling innovation’
AfricaCom’s 2016 agenda addresses the theme: Economic development and social empowerment through digital connectivity. With a growing audience, the conference is currently the largest gathering of Africa-focused tech decision makers globally. It’s considered ‘the meeting place for those driving Africa’s digital transformation.’
“We work closely with industry leaders across sub-Saharan Africa in enterprise technology organisations in the telecoms, IoT, mobile banking, business continuity and security sectors, as well as with innovative tech companies designing augmented reality and human resource solutions for prominent brands. We are privileged to strategically engage with and witness the impact disruptive innovation has on the economic development of Africa,” adds Middleton.
