Experts from across Africa providing advice on various issues affecting entrepreneurship in Africa
Johannesburg - It’s a typical day in Johannesburg, South Africa’s commercial capital. The day is deceptively warm, but with a slow dark cloud formation warning of an imminent downpour, common at this time of the year. In the quaint suburb of Cyrildene, about 15 minutes to the east of the Johannesburg Central Business District. Derrick Street resembles the oriental and eastern setting. As one blogger said; walking along this street is like one is in Hong Kong. It’s a short but busy street with restaurants, retail and wholesale shops for Asian food.
ZURICH – Evernote, the company that is helping the world remember everything, is joining forces with the African Technology Foundation (ATF) to find Africa’s hottest homegrown talent in app design and development.

Kumasi - Ghana’s scientific community is sharing ideas on technologies and challenges involved in the efficient and sustainable use of bamboo for housing in the country.
Bamboo is widely regarded as an excellent substitute for wood in housing. Its use in construction has potential benefits in terms of sustainable use of timber resources, economic savings in construction and high strength to material weight ratios.
However, bamboo housing in Ghana is relatively low, mainly due to lack of innovation and appropriate technology for processing local bamboo species.
The 1st Bamboo Colloquium, sponsored by the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI) is on the theme “Bamboo Utilization for a Greener Construction and Future in Ghana”.
