Built in Africa

The language of technology can unite Africa and the African diaspora to work toward sustainable development, according to the team behind Built in Africa (BIA). BIA is a platform to spotlight technology made in Africa, for Africa, as well as to connect developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and other tech disruptors in Africa and the diaspora. At the top of the page linked above, readers can click on "Video" to see content highlighting projects ranging from financial and security tech, to energy and consumer electronics. Readers can click on "Blog" for information on tech projects, tips for getting involved with the African tech industry, and stories from the people shaping this emerging sector. Readers can sort the Blog contents by categories such as "Developers," "Designers," and "Talent Accelerators." There is also the BIA Podcast, which can be found by scrolling the homepage for links to various listening platforms. Each podcast episode features a 10-15 minute conversation with a tech trailblazer. The team behind BIA comes from a range of backgrounds and includes Asafu Thomas, Nathan Hastings-Spaine, Brillian Achieng, and Daniel Nutakor. BIA is active on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram ( on all three), or on Twitter (@builtinafrica_).
