Earlier this month, IBM opened the Nairobi IBM Innovation Center, the 41st center of its kind worldwide and the first in East Africa. This Innovation Center is a prime example of how IBM is helping to accelerate growth in Africa from the ground up with an ecosystem of highly skilled partners. IBM is working to support the growing network of entrepreneurs, academics, developers, and students by providing technology, business resources and a hub where they can come together to work with technology and business experts from around the world

But the opening of the NairobiIBMInnovationCenter is just the beginning of IBM’s work in the emerging ecosystem of tech and business in Africa.

To keep the conversation going and hear from expert voices, we will be hosting a Smarter Friday Facebook Chat this Friday, May 17th, from noon to 5 p.m. East Africa Time (4 a.m. – noon Eastern Standard Time).

The session, focused on East Africa’s growing technology industry and ecosystem, will be hosted by me and Julian Kyula, CEO of Nairobi-based mobile startup MoDe and IBM’s Global Entrepreneur of the Year.

SP Africa Infog April 2013

We would love your perspective on emerging technology markets in East Africa, and IBM welcomes your participation in the chat at any point throughout the day. Here is how you can participate:

1. Login to Facebook.

2. “Like” the People for a Smarter Planet Facebook page.

3. Check out the page this Friday, May 17th, during the hours mentioned above, and respond to the questions posed by our chat hosts! Respond and discuss by writing in the comments section of their posts.
