In a book-report titled “Startup Lions”, the entrepreneur and tech reporter Samir Abdelkrim paints the story of 3 years of investigation and immersion trips at the heart of tech ecosystems and new actors of innovation in Africa. It explains why and how African startups solve people’s problems and lay the foundations for a new society, from which the West should draw inspiration.
“Our future is being invented today in Africa. This is the enthusiastic but lucid observation of Samir Abdelkrim, who furrowed for three years the roads under construction of African technology. To make this book, Samir Abdelkrim traveled from the Ethiopian highlands to the Kigali hills, from incubators in Tunis to hackathons in Dakar to explore relentlessly the digital ecosystems of more than 20 countries. Hundreds of entrepreneurs shared with him their bold vision of an Africa emancipated by organic innovation, emerging spontaneously from the uses of citizen-hackers.
Startup Lions will introduce you to the fundamentals of organic innovation, unique to Africa. A model where entrepreneurs create their own ecosystems, “from scratch”, without waiting for state support and where constraint is no longer an obstacle, but a gateway to innovation!
