Africa’s Silicon Valley is becoming a reality, reports Kenya’s Capital FM Business.
Their feature story says that Kenya’s Information and Communication Technology sector has grown in leaps and bounds–and highlights DDD Kenya’s opening in Nairobi.
They report that “only five months young in the Kenyan market, US-based non-profit organization, Digital Divide Data (DDD) is living up to its name by bridging the digital divide with the primarily goal of creating jobs for talented youth in developing countries.”
The story quotes DDD Kenya’s Managing Director, Amolo Ng’weno, saying, “I think there’s been a dramatic explosion of creativity, and Kenya is now known as a worldwide centre for ICT innovation. We are a fairly small country, so we can’t win on scale in the international market, but we can win on quality, creativity and innovation. I think we are at the beginning of a great cycle and take off.”
