African Innovation Ecosystem Roundtables
1.4. Significance of the study
This study sheds light on the current situation in Africa as far as innovation ecosystems andstakeholders are concerned, with a focus on four regions (Western, Southern, Eastern and Central Africa). It ensured a basic understanding of the continents needs and accomplishments and established the foundation from where more specific, focussed conversations and engagements can be launched in future. It also contributed to knowledge sharing in bringing role players from different countries together to discuss their differences and similarities as they drive innovation in their countries, their regions and ultimately the continent.
1.5. Limitation of the Study
The analysis was limited to the information gathered from the four regional discussions and to the knowledge and insights from those in attendance. No additional research (desktop study) was conducted as the focus of this study was to hear from the informants in each region and to understand their opinions, concerns, solutions and plans.
