African Cities Innovation Analysis Report Launch

Β 

Are you looking to expand your business into African Cities? Do you want to have a better understanding of the opportunities African Cities can offer UK companies? Join us on the 19th November to discuss the opportunities and hear about our upcoming project in Africa.Β 

Β 

As the UK’s national centre of excellence for urban innovation, Connected Places Catapult helps identify and open up new innovation markets for UK companies in cities around the world.

Β 

City-led innovation in urban infrastructure development and service delivery is on the rise in African cities. Many of them are creating new districts and neighbourhoods from the ground up, while also fostering new and rapidly growing innovation ecosystems. Cities on the continent face numerous urban challenges, yet the business and investment climate, as well as prospects for economic growth, are rapidly improving.

Β 

To understand the role and potential impact for UK Business, Innovate UK commissioned this scoping exercise completed by Connected Places Catapult in March 2019 to identify if and how African cities offer an opportunity for UK innovation companies; and to garner early insights on the most promising routes to market for such opportunities.

Β 

Join us to hear more about the main findings of the report; an introduction to our new project workingΒ with six cities across Kenya and South Africa; networking drinks reception with key stakeholders in this sector.

Β 

Full agenda to be shared soon.
