Digital transformation and systems innovation in the Africa region have made great strides
in the past years as a result of the work of innovative entrepreneurs, progressive government
initiatives on the country and pan-African level, and collaborative ecosystem builders all over
the continent.
The intertwined role of entrepreneurship, innovation and technology is fuelling a paradigm that
requires new thinking and insights. It is imperative to understand this paradigm at the global
and regional level, and to have the capacity to act at the national level. The 2020 ITU Regional
Innovation Forum for Africa, which took place as part of the ITU 2020 Global Innovation Forum,
concluded that governments need to create locally tailored regulatory frameworks through
inclusive processes. Corporate and government actors must collaborate — not compete — in
order to not replicate each other. Young entrepreneurs must be put at the forefront of growth
on the continent.
