THE 1873 TECH DIGEST is an initiative of the 1873 Digital Africa to answer this very question, to build a snapshot of what’s going on in Africa — the professional actors, the startups, the old guard, the VCs, the events — to tell the story of the people, places, and things that make Africa unique.
This site is for all interested actors operating as users and providers of services to the digital landscape.
And I hope each article posted lures young smart people out here to this wonderful place in search of new opportunities, a nice countermeasure to the trash that most reality shows spew out to the rest of the world.
We hope that you join us on this journey, as Africa continues to map its path as the place where imagination and reality intersect.
