Centre SonghaïBeninPorto-Novo
Songhaï est motivé pour l’essentiel : le bonheur ! Par l’impulsion du développement socio-économique durable. Point de bonheur, dans : l’insuffisance alimentaire ; l’exode rural ; la fuite des cerveaux ; l’économie extravertie ; la dégradation de l’environnement ; la perte d’espoir en l’avenir chez les jeunes ; l’agriculture de subsistance ; la non valorisation de l’opportunité que constitue la croissance démographique ; etc.

Ce désir permanent et constant du bonheur nous anime depuis toujours. Nous participons à la recherche de ce bonheur, pas seulement pour nous de manière égoïste, mais pour le plus grand nombre des humains d’Afrique et d’ailleurs.

Hunger and Disease. AGRO-HUB is making enormous effort to make
Cameroons’ agric sector more attractive and a lucrative business as most

AKENDEWA TECH HUBCote d'ivoire
Abidjan Cocody Deux plateaux Perles , rue de l'ambassade de chine
ABIDJAN
The Internet is a worldwide computer network. It is a vast spider web that connects billions of people in the world. Based on the IP protocol, it is a global infrastructure which is the foundation for the Web and numerous other services.
The Web is a phenomenal source of information. It is a system that enables us to navigate from pages to pages by clicking on links with a navigator.
The Web is short name for World Wide Web (WWW), which is « toile d’araignée mondiale » in French.
A translation of spider in African culture and especially in languages of the Akan group of Cote d’Ivoire yields the name Akendewa. Akendewa is indeed a spider with a human shape.
It is therefore a hominoid. Akendewa often goes by the name of « Kacou Ananze ». He is considered the head of a household; he is very strong in the village (digital) and always has ideas.
A group of young workers passionate about the Web, inspired by the values represented by this well-known African tale, has created the AKENDEWA organization.
AKENDEWA intends to be a powerful organization that rests on the competences of its members and gather an important, motivated and dynamic community.

1 Dr. Mohamed Sobhy St., 2nd Floor, Flat 6, Giza
Cairo
For the past few years, hundreds of startups have sprung up in the region; the question is how many of them have survived for more than a few years?

Without the proper funding, guidance, and understanding of marketing and production, chances are that a newly sprung startup will not have what it takes to survive. For that reason, Sawari Ventures and the American University in Cairo have come together to provide Egyptian technology visionaries with the opportunity to bring their visions to life in an environment that ensures that they learn what they need to make it on their own.

The idea was quite simple: create a proper working space in Cairo, ask teams to apply with a prospective project, and choose and foster the best of them physically, financially, and mentally for a three months period. After that, they are given a chance to demonstrate how far they have developed and are provided with the opportunity to further their cause. With that in mind, Flat6Labs was born.

icecairoEgypt
32 Sabri Abo Alam Street, 1st floor, apartment 8, Downtown, Just off Talaat Harb Square, behind the legendary Tahrir Square.
Cairo,
icecairo is a not-for-profit, community-powered green tech innovation hub. We work together to solve environmental and social challenges using the brilliance of the icecairo community, and to turn these challenges in to green businesses. By convening workshops around specific challenges, the icecairo community is able to identify solutions. We then use our fablab's rapid prototyping machinery to create and evolve these solutions into real world green products. These products can then be sold by sustainable businesses, powered by and employing young Egyptians. In this way icecairo embodies it's mission: green tech innovation for youth job creation.

icecairo offers two incredible spaces for innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurship. Our physical hub (the downtown hub) is a space where people can co-work, attend / run events, and use the fablab to make / hack &quot;green&quot; products. Our online hub is a collection of platforms: a website, a wiki, a mapping system, an e-learning platform and an e-commerce site, all designed to maximise collaboration within the icecairo community.

Together with our partners in civil society, the private sector, government and academia, icecairo believes it can turn almost any challenge in to a sustainable business opportunity.

Great Kosa Suaye Technological Centre (workshop of Apostle Safo Kantanka)
Ghana
Gomoa Mpota village along Kasoa-Winneba road
Gomoa Mpota, Central Region
Apostle Safo sees before him an
opportunity to improve a process and to create a device or object that
will facilitate, improves or aid something or someone else. For him,
technology is the evolution of ideas and that is exactly what he is
doing to bring comfort and freedom to his society.
For most of human history,
technology was mainly the province of craftmen who passed their
know-how down from generation to generation; gradually improving
designs and adding new techniques and materials. Today, technology has
become a large scale enterprise that depended on a large stores of
know-how that has become too large for one society to master.
Like every human being, Apostle
Safo was gifted with a sizeable brain and favourable thumbs which
afford him a near unique ability to make real the innovations that he
imagines. He has a unique inspiration and remit his creativity and
notion to express his ideas into something real and tangible.
Realising that technology has
changed the social system of humans and their behavioral patterns and
still increasing the rapidness of research and development of
societies, he is of the view that, if Africa should invest in
technolgical innovations, poverty will be a thing of the past. Modern technology has come to represent the means by which
people seek to transform their culture and advance to modernity.
Africa and for that matter our traditional cultures have embraced them
into our world-view. We have adopted the products of western
technology both into our way of life as well as our mode of thought.
So why are we reluctant to contribute to it?
At Gomoa Mpota in the Central
region of Ghana, Great Kosa Suaye Technology Centre has embarked on a
lot of technological innovativeness. Call it engineering or
re-engineering, designing or redesigning, invention or re-invention,
there is still enough reason to buttress this course.



The Centre has the following departments :



·

· Foundry and Pattern Development

· Plant Medicine
· Building and Construction
· Mechanical and Automobile
· Radio and Transmission

Universities, Business and Research in Agricultural Innovation (UniBRAIN) initiative
International
AU-IBAR, FARA/UniBRAIN Office, P. O. Box 7181, Nairobi, Kenya
International
The Universities, Business and Research in Agricultural Innovation (UniBRAIN) initiative:
supports the establishment of the agribusiness incubators owned by universities, businesses and agricultural research institutions to commercialise agricultural technologies
and produce graduates with entrepreneurial and business skills it is an initiative of the Fo-rum of Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and the government of Denmark
Why should you be interested in UniBRAIN?
UniBRAIN agribusiness incubators are gateways to the huge human and infrastructural re-sources of their members: skilled professionals and technicians, laboratories, field testing stations. These resources can be accessed quickly and with low transaction costs because the incubators have pre-negotiated standard contracts, confidentiality and intellectual prop-erty agreements. Researchers with commercialisable inventions seeking firms to fabricate and distribute their products will be assured of due diligence and equitable benefit sharing
The incubators will also provide soft-landing services for inward investors seeking reliable advice and partnerships

International Development Design Summit
InternationalInternational
The International Development Design Summit is an intense, hands-on design
experience that brings together people from all over the world and all
walks of life to create technologies and enterprises that improve the
lives of people living in poverty. Unlike most academic conferences, we
emphasize the development of prototypes, not papers and proceedings.In
moving the technologies on the path from idea to implementation to
impact we aim to create real ventures, not just business plans. IDDS is
part of the revolution in design that aims to encourage, promote, and
build more research and development resources that focus on the needs of
the world’s poor. We draw inspiration from several current models of
innovation, design and community empowerment: co-creation,
cross-disciplinary collaborations and crowd sourcing.

IDDS is a function of the International
Development Innovation Network (IDIN), a consortium of institutions
including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Olin College of
Engineering, Colorado State University, University of California in
Davis, University of Sao Paulo in Brasil, KNUST in Ghana, and NTBC in
Zambia. IDIN is sponsored by the Higher Education Solutions Network
(HESN), a USAID initiative to improve science, technology, and innovation.

Maker Faire Africa is both a yearly pan-African maker faire & a community of makers.
A compendium of handcrafters that hail from Africa’s tiniest villages
to her most expansive urban burgs. What we have in common is
an unwavering commitment to origin, ingenuity & innovation. A
fellowship of creators who believe making is the most authentic form of
manufacturing, and manufacturing is what forges a vigorous middle class.
We’re bold & we’re gritty. Curious & quirky. Our inventions
have largely stayed hidden in the ‘punk of the bush’ and the outer
reaches of the informal sector. Until now. At our annual pan-African Maker Faire, we connect up, size up, mash up, and up the anti on redefining the future of the world’s most promising continent through our own authentic, relentless African ingenuity.
