On December 20th, 2019, we held an inauguration event for Adei Technology Hub. We were glad to have a great turnout of friends and partners of the institute. A remarkable group of panelists discussed the theme “gaps and opportunities of the entrepreneurial tech ecosystem in Côte d’Ivoire”. The discussion corroborated the pertinence of our positioning in the ecosystem addressing both the funding challenge as well as the availability of qualified talents.

This year has been unprecedented in many ways, not the least of which is the impact of the global COVID19 pandemic. After only a few months of remote work, Adei Technology Hub happily reopened its doors this summer, with social distancing and mask requirements. We are continuing our efforts to make an impact in the emerging markets of Côte d’Ivoire, while keeping up with COVID19 guidelines.
