Looking at the world and different ecosystems, it is clear that no real change or value is driven or achieved by individuals alone, but instead, through teams, communities and smart collaboration. A change in mindset towards collaboration amongst businesses, government agencies and civil society in Africa is therefore essential in reimagining our approach to innovation.
 
Our panelists will share insights from their experiences on the fears surrounding collaboration among companies, startups, investors etc. in Africa and how they can be overcome. As stakeholders in the Startup space our discussions will touch upon the challenges and possible solutions from our informed and varied viewpoints. The session will also highlight the importance of and procedure for mergers and collaborations amongst innovators on the continent.
