Africa’s Ed-Tech Sector Has Unlimited Potential, but Lack of Funding Holds It Back

By Tom Jackson

Africa’s ed-tech sector has unlimited potential, with a great number of startups innovating in different areas, yet ultimately a lack of funding in a sector that still has a reputation for “impact” over “profit” may hold it back.

A recent Disrupt Podcast three-parter looking at Africa’s ed-tech sector, released in partnership with eLearn Africa, an ed-tech startup working to increase and expand educational and employment opportunities throughout Africa, examined the problems e-learning startups on the continent are solving, the innovations that are being scaled, and the support and funding ecosystem that is driving growth.
