It aims at bringing experts in some key emerging technologies to help shape the conversations on opportunities in the digital space for technology entrepreneurs. Introduction and Background DigiCAP.gh is an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) project by the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through sequa gGmbH, and implemented by AFOS, the German Foundation for Entrepreneurial Development Cooperation. As part of the project’s objectives, ICT-related capacity-building programs are organized in partnership with the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH) and its partners from the ICT industry in Ghana and beyond. These programs target employment opportunities for young people and how to unlock sustainable jobs in relevant emerging technologies knowledge areas. Several initiatives have been rolled out to realize this objective. Notable among them are the Industry-Academia Tech Dialogue (INDAC-TED), a quarterly symposium, which is a platform to discuss issues of skills development and employment. Another major one is the Tech Job Fair which has become an annual event of matchmaking between job seekers and employers in the technology field. The third initiative to help address the unemployment issue for the youth is the Tech Entrepreneurs Forum (TEF). The forum is designed to give young tech entrepreneurs, start-ups, freelancers, and tech consultants (Gig workers) the platform to showcase their innovations, skills, and concept to business leaders and entrepreneurs.
TEF2023Fostering stronger collaboration between industry and academia is essential to promote tech entrepreneurship. Industry and academia have different strengths and weaknesses that can complement each other. Academia has the expertise and resources to conduct research and develop new technologies, while industry has the experience and resources to bring these technologies to market. By working together, industry and academia can create a more supportive environment for tech entrepreneurs. This collaboration can take many forms, such as joint research projects, internships, mentorship programs, and technology transfer agreements. By fostering stronger collaboration between industry and academia, we can create a more vibrant tech ecosystem that supports innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, we bring to you the Tech Entrepreneurs Forum 2023, organized, and branded as a service product of the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH), and supported by its partner AFOS Foundation.
