With political will, Africa can transform itself through emerging technologies

What you need to know:

  • Last week I joined leaders in policy, business and academia from around the world in Kampala for Africa’s largest blockchain conference.
  • A majority of the people have no clue what cryptocurrency is, let alone how it works. There are just a few excited people who will want to move with lightning speed. But it requires the courage of a few to speak out like the governor did.
  • Uganda has set aside resources to support innovation. No country, however, will succeed alone. The emerging business models require a significant population to make it.
  • In President Museveni we have that political will and hopefully we can rally behind him to get other African countries interested in these emerging technologies that will drive the upcoming fourth industrial revolution.
