Make-IT in Afrika
Make-IT in Afrika fördert digitale Innovationen für eine nachhaltige und integrative Entwicklung in Afrika.
The initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has been supporting local digital innovations since 2016. The focus is on technology start-ups and their business ecosystems in selected partner countries of the German development cooperation. This takes place in cooperation with the Make-IT Alliance, a merger of predominantly private European companies, associations and social enterprises.
Make-It in Africa is part of the #Team Europe initiative African European Digital Innovation Bridge (AEDIB). It is a joint partnership focussed on promoting digital entrepreneurship. After all, entrepreneurs are the driving force behind a sustainable and integrative digital transformation on both continents and are a fundamental requirement for establishing a resilient and diverse digital economy after the pandemic.
