AFGRI Technology Services’ MD, Niki Neumann, is one of the contributors to the first in a series of white papers being produced by Thomson Reuters Labs Cape Town/Matter Innovation/HYBR. The first report of the series focuses on the overall challenges of the African innovation ecosystem and includes a set of recommendations to provide a practical guide of success stories, persistent challenges, and most importantly, lessons learned. The report, entitled “Fixing the African Innovation ecosystem for the many, not the few”, investigates the effectiveness of existing approaches to support the innovation ecosystem and provides recommendations on how to address specific challenges. It offers an important contribution to the crucial debate about how African corporates, start-ups and ecosystem actors can collaborate more effectively in future for mutual gain and broader societal impact.
