Africa’s innovation and technology ecosystem is playing a strong, and often silent, role in creating solutions and jobs while reducing inequalities.

techbuild.africa is a tech blog in Africa supporting startups and innovators as they build the future of Africa. We exist to amplify the authentic stories of African startups that have no marketing budget; stories that showcase the strength and resilience of our innovators across the Continent as they persevere to create solutions to our societal challenges.
