About Conference & Award

An Augmented Continent

Disruptive Africa conference and Awards 2018 will be bring together exceptional Speakers, panelist, exhibitors, professionals, Innovators and organisations together under one roof to learn and celebrate Africa’s milestones in the areas of Disruptive Technologies.

As the technology revolution sweeps across the world, global organizations are beginning to look into emerging economies like Africa to impact their next million customers.

Africa could take a huge exponential leap towards a better future if we are able to collaboratively leverage technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in enhancing various sectors of our economy.

Being one of the first advocacy group in Africa for Disruptive technologies and the fourth industrial revolutions since 2015, we understand that beyond bringing people together to collaborate and share knowledge, there is need to recognise people and organisations across Africa making impact in these areas.

About Innovation Growth Workshop

Innovating the African Way

Disruptive Africa is partnering with one of the world’s leading technology leaders, innovation enablers and knowledge thinkers, Prof Ndubuisi Ekekwe of Fasmicro Group, to run an innovation workshop with specific focus on growth and execution, across industrial sectors, in 2018 Disruptive Africa. Through this workshop, participants will experience and master key nexus on innovation and growth from an entrepreneur, academic and advisor to leading global CEOs. Dr Ekekwe holds two doctoral and four master’s degrees including a PhD from the Johns Hopkins University and BEng EEE from FUTO (Owerri).

Prof Ekekwe writes regularly in the Harvard Business Review (HBR) where he focuses on technology, business, innovation and Africa. He is a TED Fellow, World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and was one of the designers that engineered a generational accelerometer for the iPhone.

The workshop will focus on innovation and growth because growth is the reward of innovation. Otherwise, that innovation is actually an invention. Prof Ekekwe would be the lead instructor supported by his team.
