Before I visited Africa for the first time my imagination I thought it was all about wild animals, bush and under-development. When I was there I saw a completely different picture. A country where mobile banking is far more advanced than anywhere in North America or Europe, an innovative power that has the potential to explode if only given the right ambient and conditions. Over time my interest grew and today I am launching this blog, because I’d like to share Inventive Africa with the world. Africa was exploited for too long. Many bloggers have become famous for their blogging. This shall not happen with this blog. I want my readers – and hopefully I’ll be joined by other authors, in which case it would be “our readers” – to focus on the people of Africa, their inventive spirit and the change that is happening there.
