The innovation narrative in Africa has moved from innovating out of necessity to finding African-solutions-to-African-problems to innovation from Africa to the world. How do we ensure that innovative start-ups in Africa meet the needs of Africans? When it comes to disruption in Africa, one size fits none. Models can’t necessarily be lifted directly from Europe or America and implemented in Africa. They can't even be lifted from one African country and replicated in another. In line with this year's SMW theme 'Closer', African Innovation: Disrupting From Within is a panel session aimed at providing in-depth look at how African innovation develops in context and consideration of our local dynamics. We will explore the mindsets, partnerships, models and interests that underpin this idea .
