Why African Smart Cities ?

Opening Doors to The World And The World to Africa. Africa is the world's second largest and second most-populous continent. At about 30.3 million km² including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of Earth's total surface area and 20.4% of its total land area. With 1.2 billion people as of 2016. By 2020, Africa is likely to be the fastest urbanizing continent in the world. It is currently the most rural -- only 40% of sub-Saharan Africa's population live in cities.

Services

Training

Offer a combination of training, coaching, online workshops, digital webinars, Education, Development

Maturity Assessment

assessing the relative maturity of your city/town/village/microcity competency in a particular area and helping you identify opportunities for improvement and where and how to start.

Research Reports

We provide you with thought leadership in the form of both reports and industry leaders who have done it seeing it and been successful.

We believe that for africa to stimulate economic growth and become a global destination for individuals, businesses, and tourists, the rural towns have to start competing among one another starting within the country and later with other african countries and then with global similar towns.The cities will have to do the same and this will result in improved infrastructure and investment climate to enable them to develop along with their growing populations.

  • From rural towns to smart-towns within the country

  • from cities to smart-cities (in-country and later within africa and global cities

  • As cities begin to compete within country, and then compete with other cities within the continent and later with global cities, African cities will never be the same

Matchmaking - it starts with a village, then a town then a city in Africa. We will matchmake it with one from anywhere in the world that matches yours in terms of key indicators like population, infrastructure, talent, revenue. We will facilitate creation of relationships at mayor, municipal manager or C-levels.
