What happens when a continent skips an era, enters directly into the 4th industrial revolution, having left all of its fundamental needs unresolved? Needs are resolved using innovation & digital technologies.
In this talk, the host of CNBC‘s show Tailored Business – a show that investigates and showcases entrepreneurship across Africa defines what needs-based innovation is (ie innovation born out of a necessity as opposed to a desire to build something „new“) and outlines the best examples.
This talk visits the concept of needs-based innovation and its implication on the African continent, from creating a new generation of tech-savvy schoolers to digitally-operated smart cities and institutions.

The talk leaves the audience wanting to know more and BE MORE.
Highlights of the talk ;
Tania found herself at age 24, at the helm of an international fashion company – as sole person responsible for bringing the 300m USD brand to sub-Sahara Africa, setting up its operations in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa, and an eCommerce store that delivered to 34 African countries, and then subsequently a few years later, also found herself faced with a near-bankruptcy experience.
Tania is the Belgian-Rwandan girl born in the diaspora with a desire to see the African continent on the world stage, this is the girl who self-funded her studies in the UK by founding her own dance company.
Tania is also the girl who found herself broke in London less than 5 years ago, and yet is standing here today.
Our continent is often described as the world’s youngest continent and indeed 220 million Africans are between 15 and 25 and are expected to be around 350 million by 2030. Africa’s burgeoning youth population represents the continent’s greatest asset and will determine the development trajectory of Africa over the next decades.
For the first time in Africa’s history, we have a generation that has developped at the same pace as the rest of world, who have access to the same amount of information, the same news channels, the same online courses as the rest of the world, thanks to modern day technology – and in many instances, young Africans have in fact proven themselves to be innovative and living in the future.
This workshop aims to accelerate and diversify business transformation in corporates and organizations. It focuses on bridging the gap and enhancing the employment prospects of youth in marginalised communities to join the mainstream and ensure their contribution towards a prosperous continent. Whilst, at the same time aiding companies to better understand the younger generations, their needs and wants when it comes to joining an organization. Here are a couple of the points discussed :
• Decrease unemployment and increase company asset value with untapped resources
• Ensuring Youth-Corporate culture fit
• Human Capital development : Africa’s youth & developing their skills
• Effective Mentorship Schemes
