Dr Edem Adzogenu

Presentation: How must Africa Capitalize on this Historical moment to Effectively Deploy and Scale-up Digital Solutions

Dr. Edem Adzogenu’s work straddles the public, private and civic sectors, with an emphasis on innovation, economic development, pan-African integration and social transformation. Dr Adzogenu has been at the forefront of ground-breaking initiatives to promote public-private partnerships and a stronger role for the African private sector in regional and continental integration. Under his leadership, AfroChampions, an organisation he co-founded, has grown into an influential regional public-private partnership platform that partners the African Union and several regional institutions to drive African integration and transformation, using innovative toolkits such as technology investing, novel financing instruments and intergovernmental policy design. Working with some of Africa’s foremost thinkers and leaders, he guided the adoption by African Heads of State of the “Trillion Dollar Private Sector AfCFTA Investment & Financing Framework (TDF)” in support of AfCFTA Implementation. Beyond his special focus on Africa, Dr. Adzogenu sits on several International Advisory boards.
