Bringing Africa Online with Eric Osiakwan

"[The mobile revolution] created wealth, it connected people, it brought people on the the grid. It also, to a very large extent, created inclusion. Now, people could talk."

Eric Osiakwan is an entrepreneur and investor with 15 years of ICT industry leadership experience across Africa and the world. Today, he joins The Get InPowered Podcast to discuss his work across 32 African countries building the Internet infrastructure that is enabling Africa to not only join the global economy, but in many ways, to lead it. 

While Eric is working to transform the economic course of Africa through technology, conversations like this can broaden the understanding of Africa’s place in our modern world, and our own place in its further development.

“It only was able to happen because private individuals decided to build private businesses and build this network.”
