The platform, which is tagged ‘Building Wakanda’, will propel
conversations that are relevant to the development and growth of the African
IoT ecosystem.

Also, through the platform, both companies aim to build
awareness about the impacts of various stakeholders in achieving the common
goal, which is developing the African tech ecosystem.

Besides, physical laboratories where innovative minds can
meet to build and test their ideas will be all over the continent.

According to the duo, the first of the labs will start
operations this year, and it will serve members of communities in Nairobi,
Kenya. It will emerge as the first open IoT lab In East Africa and the second
in Africa.

and sustainable things, we need to pinpoint and invite vital stakeholders who
can invest the resources to inspire new thinking, create awareness, and support
IoT innovators.’’
