Africa: How tech entrepreneurs can succeed in Africa

Mkaigwa explains how African tech entrepreneurs can succeed: “I am not the first to write about the seeming shortcomings that the African Internet tech scene is currently undergoing. A state in which many competent and talented coders, programmers and creatives with working products just aren’t making viable and sustainable profit. There are of course many reasons as to why this happens…It is the lack of products, solutions and innovations that capture the population’s imagination and aspiration.”
