WHAT DRIVES US

Pan African Tech Foundation (PATF) is an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization established to provide education, legal, regulatory, and technological support in establishing and implementing emerging technologies and digital transformation in Africa. PATF focuses on harnessing Africa’s talent, in particular that of young Africans, by nurturing an environment of idea generation, innovation, and creativity to bring novel technological solutions to market and contribution to Africa’s sustainable development.

about PATF

PUTTING AFRICA FIRST

There are significant issues that plague the African continent related to digital transformation. Africa has a large pool of unemployed talented young adults facing challenges in their entrepreneurial journeys and as they try to innovate using technology. According to United Nations statistics, young adults below 35 make up 75% of Africa’s population. Young Africans will constitute up to 42% of the world’s youth population by 2030, a global, untapped asset. These challenges are exacerbated by a lack of government and funder support for technological innovation. Many are still stuck in legacy culture and doubt innovation. 

INNOVATION | EDUCATION | TRANSFORMATION

Establishing a platform for young African entrepreneurs to access mentorship, business strategy and development,
coaching to develop their technological innovations for the benefit of the broader society, and to establish a level playing field for international competition.
