"Africa is ready for lift-off. The multiple challenges of the continent have fast become the catalyst for innovation on an astounding level - forming new technologies, new infrastructure, new ways of doing things, and a new narrative. Africa is a continent full of creativity, energy, and change - and much of it is thanks to the miracle of the mobile phone.
