We Are Here To Serve You
Afritechnisation was founded in February 2013 and with the aim of solving grand challenges facing the African continent. Afritechnise is a way of solving grand African challenges by leveraging exponential technologies being discovered anywhere from the world. We aim to tackle challenges in Education to improve the lives of millions of Africans. Our focus at this stage is on Educational Technology to make sure that every child has resources and tools to be able to learn and contribute to society. We have an online publication EdTechDojo aimed solely at informing Africans on the latest EdTech news and tools available. Annually we host E-Mindset Convention to inspire the next generation of African entrepreneurs and Innovators.

Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.
Education is the most powerful weapon in which we can use to change the world!
“The day before something is truly a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea.” Trying out crazy ideas means bucking expert opinion and taking big risks. It means not being afraid to fail. Because you will fail. The road to bold is paved with failure, and this means having a strategy in place to handle risk and learn from mistakes is critical.”
“Biotechnology isn’t just accelerating at the speed of Moore’s law, it’s accelerating at five times the speed of Moore’s law—doubling in power and halving in price every four months!”
