Innovation in Africa – Business Sweden report


Hope this email find you well and that you have had a good start of the new year.

I am reaching out to you as me and my colleagues discussed the innovation climate in Africa with you sometime last year.

Thank you for assisting us with this research by sharing your thoughts and experiences with us. We discussed this topic with around 30 business leaders, professors, and entrepreneurs across Africa and in Sweden, and we are glad to now share the findings with you which are gathered in our newly published report “Africa: Fertile Ground for Innovation and Opportunity”.

You can download the full report here:

We have already had the chance to present the report’s key findings at the Kenya Innovation Week, and we look forward to discuss it with more stakeholders during 2022 – to shed more light on all the exciting projects and opportunities available in the African markets!

Feel free to share the report with your network, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to discuss the topic further.

All the best,



Andreas Giallourakis
