    Collaboration and coordination among stakeholders

    The dominant economic model in Africa is seen as ineffective in transforming the continent and addressing the challenges faced by its people. It contributes to inequality, exclusion, and poverty, hindering the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. To overcome these issues, there is a need for a paradigm shift towards homegrown solutions and local ownership. Africans are encouraged to think creatively and build an authentic development model based on their values. Ecosystem building in Africa is still in its early stages due to factors such as political instability, weak infrastructure, and limited access to capital. To support indigenous enterprises and foster their growth, an enabling environment is crucial. This includes providing the necessary resources, infrastructure, and networks as catalysts for success. Collaboration and coordination among stakeholders are essential in addressing the emerging needs and challenges of ecosystem building.

    Shaping Social Innovation in Africa.
