A Resilient Africa 2020 - An AfriLabs Impact Report


Mozilla Roundtables

AfriLabs partnered with internet giant Mozilla to convene roundtable discussions with African startups, entrepreneurs, developers and innovators. These roundtable discussions focussed on understanding the local needs, expertise and capabilities of African countries and explored under-served issues and areas that could spur the next generation of innovation in the region. AfriLabs partnership with Mozilla brings together two organisations committed to supporting communities of technologists by putting people first. The partnership will help develop more relevant, sustainable support for African innovators to build scalable resilient products, leveraging honest and candid discussions to identify areas of common interest. Mozilla launched exploratory research in the form of round table discussions to better understand the ecosystem, explore and identify new product ideas that solve real-life issues. The discussions were hosted as part of Mozilla’s efforts to reinvest within the African tech ecosystem and support local innovators with scalable ideas that have the potential to impact across the continent. and AfriLabs

“Mozilla is working with AfriLabs as the aggregator of Tech hubs to come up and identify real life problems that are plaguing the continent and develop real life solutions developed by Africans for Africans not by other people. This will help us learn more about the intersection of African product needs and capacity gaps and to co-create value with local entrepreneurs”
