Internet Business Cultures in Africa: East + West – ICTworks Twitter Chat

By Wayan Vota on April 14, 2010

Last month, we had an amazing Skype Chat on Nigerian Internet Business Opportunities – over 40 entrepreneurs and netcitizens joined in a lively debate on new business models and enabling factors to bring Nigeria to the forefront of online business innovation.

But what about East Africa? Kenya surely has the same level of Internet-based buzz as Nigeria. And Uganda isn’t far behind. So this brings forth a few questions we should examine:

  1. How might Internet business opportunity and entrepreneurship be different in East Africa versus West Africa?
  2. What could each region learn from the other?
  3. And what can we do now to improve cross-Africa collaboration?

These are the questions we’ll discuss in the next ICTworks Twitter Chat – a freewheeling conversation around our central questions on the Twitter platform.

We’ll start at 14:00 GMT (your timezone) on April 22nd with introductions, then move into the discussion, using the #ICT4D hashtag in Twitter. Be sure to RSVP here.
