Open Innovation Africa Summit
What if we were able to build a world where innovative ideas, best practices and knowledge would flow freely and were harnessed to solutions which solve everyday challenges?
It's called the Open Innovation Africa Summit and it's happening the week of November 29th 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya!
The summit aims to promote creation of new innovation services and collaboration models, which ensure continuous alignment between different players of the innovation ecosystem as well as to embed end-user driven co-creation and open innovation as critical elements to African innovation systems.
They've launched a great ideation platform as part of it that revolves around the four main streams for the event:
- Ecosystem for Innovation
- Emerging Market Business Models
- Mobile Services Revolution
- Human Capital - Education for All
We're launching official communication about the event next week but I wanted to let readers of this blog know about this extraordinary initiative and to get your help providing insights and ideas (there are also 8 seats dedicated to the top contributors and readers here could for sure contribute greatly at the event itself, so I thought I'd give you all a heads up :)
