Africa Innovation (Pty) Ltd (AI) is an innovation incubator and accelerator for African small businesses and start-ups. A hub that brings young tech revolutionists together to diversify the tech spectrum to build and enhance themselves within information and communications technology.
AI promotes human development and advancement. Africa Innovation is a contributor to the technology revolution. AI positively considers technological revolution as a period in which one or more technologies are quickly supplanted by another revolutionary technology.
It is a period of accelerated technical advancement characterised by new innovations, the quick application and diffusion of which often results in a significant shift in society. We help African entrepreneurs, small companies, and innovators to put disruptive concepts into practice.
The organisational and management structure of African Innovation consists of a Chairperson, Chief Innovation Officer, Content Officer, two other officers, an administrator, and an intern. The mission of the Africa Innovation is to organise the world’s information and make it accessible and useful to the disadvantaged and disabled. Bringing innovative technology from around the world to a central platform in Africa.
AIs primary purpose of doing academic internships is so that pupils can better understand the theories, ideas, and practices of information and communication technology by actively engaging them in hands-on, work-based, learning experience; these internships will be an exciting way to learn. 100% of AI interns will be prepared for career and life as young adults who are self-aware, self-confident, highly literate in ICT and ready to design and redesign their future as it unfolds.
We see no boundaries to technological innovation as it spreads globally, and SMME development will be given significant consideration.
