Membership if I4A affords you the opportunity to work on your career and to map out your development plan. You will have access to professionals, resources and events that will ultimately help to move you along your career path.
I4A serves to bridge the gap between the seasoned and tested and the new and disruptive, and perhaps to even bring them together. As a startup, you will have access to experienced business professionals who can guide you and help you to grow. As a seasoned business person, you will have the opportunity to shape future generations and find investment opportunities.
As we harvest ideas together, these will inevitably end up as opportunities for enterprise. I4A members will then have a chance to pitch for development opportunities and to be the provider of solutions for bigger corporates, non-profit organisations as well as communities of Africa.
Events and Networking
I4A will keep you updated on events that are of interest to you and that will help build your career. You will also get preferential rates on all I4A-hosted events and others as negotiated with partners. Events are good opportunities for building contacts and networks.
Access to Professional Bodies
I4A is all about building linkages, partnerships and synergies. Innovation for Africa comes alongside professional bodies and institutions so as to ensure that they are well represented to our members and so that members are encouraged to join them for relevant exposure within their disciplines.
I4A exposes you to professionals and businesses across disciplines for synergistic collaboration. Innovation for Africa is deliberately an inter-disciplinary community so that experts can grow and focus within their field and yet have opportunity to come together with professionals in other disciplines for progressive collaboration.
Resources and Updates
The I4A website is a platform for members to draw on available resources and to interact with others. You will be kept up to date on matters relevant to innovation via regular correspondence and a printed magazine.
Innovation for Africa makes creative working space and infrastructure available to startups. We are also currently in the process of setting up a state of the art Electronics Design laboratory for Engineering and technical professionals and students.
Corporate and institutional members of I4A will have the exposure to targeted ideas from members. Our premise as a community is that if one prospers, a city prospers and so do we all. There is need for selflessness on all levels and to the extent that we are selfless with our idea is to the extent we succeed in unlocking innovation. Make sure that your organisation makes the most of this resource.
