WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Africa Business Center, in partnership with AmChams across Africa, announced the 2022 Africa Digital Innovation Competition’s Regional Champions and top 10 Continental finalists. This annual competition rewards African innovators, entrepreneurs, and startups for developing solutions through digital products and services that have a positive impact on African citizens.
“The ongoing digital transformation across Africa is actively laying the foundation for inclusive recovery, economic opportunity, and creating jobs,” said Scott Eisner, President of the U.S.-Africa Business Center. “In collaboration with our generous sponsors and partners, the U.S. Chamber is proud to provide benefit to innovators and entrepreneurs across Africa whose bold digital initiatives advance solutions to some of the continent’s most pressing challenges, like food insecurity, lack of healthcare access, e-education, and financial inclusion. We commend the finalists of the 2022 Africa Digital Innovation Competition, who are proving that Africa’s digital future continues to be bright.”
