KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: You Don't Need Bandwidth To Be Awesome

If the West Indies have a flair for cricket, don't you think Africa has a bit of flair for tech innovation? We're just not good enough at PR and instead of telling our own stories, we tend to focus on the technology innovation happening in the First World.

This keynotes aims to change that. Exploring 5 themes, from Mobile Payment to Crowdsourcing and Alternative Energy, You Don't Need Bandwidth To Be Awesome is a fun look at a continent that is learning to solve real problems with very little access to resources.
