EdTech in Low-resource Environments: Innovation Meets Resilience

In Africa, those who pursue entrepreneurship are true heroes. In this panel, we will meet the African EdTech entrepreneurs who relentlessly pursue opportunities in education.

To overcome these obstacles, African founders have demonstrated creativity, innovation and resilience.
