FluidTech Global: Future-proofing Organizations with Cutting Edge Services

Top 10 African Tech Startups - 2020

Africa is confronted with many challenges. One of the most important of these challenges is to integrate the continent into the information society. Reducing the digital divide and facilitating the continent’s absorption into the global information society would eventually overcome Africa’s isolation. Further, development in Africa depends on the continent’s capacity to create wealth first to significantly reduce poverty and raise its ability to generate wealth to unprecedented and sustainable levels. The most optimistic observers estimate that with the era of new technologies and networks, African countries have an unparalleled opportunity to gain access to, to take advantage of, and most importantly, to contribute fully to the new world constructed on knowledge.

Inclusion, efficiency, innovation is the main instruments spreading development gains from digital technologies. The African tech hubs and incubator entities, across a wide range, aim to maximize all three in different ways. While digital technologies can make routine, transaction-intensive tasks dramatically cheaper, faster, and more convenient, most jobs also have a non-automatable part, whose execution requires human judgment, intuition, and discretion. Just as the culture of Africa, the tech landscape is filled with great diversity. The range of scope it renders in varied fields tends to lead enterprises into a maze of technological companies. Our distinguished panel, comprising key decision-makers and experts along with StartupCity, has shortlisted some of the most effective start-ups in Africa to assist and provide a clear perspective. In this edition of StartupCity magazine, we present to you Top 10 African Tech Startups – 2020.
