They are the ones tapping away at screens, throwing likes at funny videos, sharing all things amazing online, stirring conversations and making faces with their photos!
Come to think of it, they are not just buying cars, they are sharing rides; they don’t queue up at banks, they just dial short codes or launch an app! They window-shop from their phones and only buy after reading a tonne of reviews, you call them annoying, we call them the revolution! Are you one of them?
Millennials are poised to reshape the African economy as we know it; their unique experiences are changing the way we buy and sell, forcing African commerce giants and startups to rethink how they do business.
How can innovative products, entrepreneurial ventures and promising ideas transform into sustainable economic growth for Africa? This is the central question of the 2017 Africa as a platform Conference organised by Q21 Solutions in partnership with ADE Digital.
Understanding how millennials think, what they do and why they do what they do is crucial for creating a transformational change in the African Technology and Business landscape. These and more are the questions we are finding answers to at the 2017 Africa as a Platform tagged ‘Machines, Millennials, Money’ and this year, we seek to find the possibilities that emerge when more and more young African innovators connect and shape our continent of 1.2 billion people.
The conference holds on September 28, 2017, at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
