Many of the challenges outlined in Dennis Ndonga's seminal paper on eCommerce in Africa written in 2012 still exist today. African States are yet to reap the full benefits of eCommerce, as it has not penetrated the continent to the extent experienced by Western countries. The lack of adequate ICT infrastructure, lack of basic ICT knowledge, and the threat of cyber crimes have created a significant barrier to the adoption and growth of eCommerce in many African countries.

Most of these challenges can be solved with the use of modern technologies and adoption strategies, but how do micro commerce businesses access, implement and benefit from these technologies and ideas? At The Future of Commerce in Africa, we will discuss how anyone can implement some of these tools and technologies. 

Other topics to be discussed: 

  • What is omni-commerce? How does it benefit an average merchant?
  • How do we make export easy for micro-businesses?
  • How do people with great products access financing without traditional bank loans?
