Online-Workshop Part 3:
Disrupt Collaboration – How agile approaches will shape our future

“Earth spins at 1670 km/h. The digital world spins faster, driven by agile teams all across the globe.

Michael Lausegger

Digitization and globalization lead to a big transformation that shapes Africa and Europe at the same time, but differently. In African countries, an absence of technology lock-ins and less vested interests allow innovative solutions closer to human needs. And while Europe talks about its new Entrepreneurial Society and the need for agile mind-sets, African societies have shown great potentials for entrepreneurship and agility.

The pandemic has shown us a huge need to go for a new mix of online/offline, physical presence/virtual exchange, face-to-face work/remote teams.

Hence, with this online-workshop series, we are looking for new forms of collaboration and new business models.

Why this Online-Workshop?

To get quick and profound insights into new approaches of African-European collaboration through direct interaction with local players.

During this master class we

  • put in context existing approaches of African- European collaboration with
  • agile practices of management
  • and the pandemic-driven need for changing our business models

This 2-hour master class is moderated by Maryanne Akoth and Hans Stoisser, both co-founders of NextAfrica. We will directly broadcast from Vienna and Nairobi.

Who is attending?

  • Entrepreneurs who are interested in African markets
  • Entrepreneurs who are already active on the continent but are still looking for new business models and opportunities
  • People who are interested and wonder what a future-oriented African-European collaboration could look like.
