The awards are designed to highlight innovation that meets Kenya’s blueprint vision to build a vibrant middle income economy by the year 2030. Participants are asked to submit proof of their innovation in one of 13 categories derived from the v2030 economic pillar.
Now in its 10th year the Connected Kenya Summit brings over 500 ICT thought leaders and experts to share and exchange ideas on how ICT can continue to be a catalyst of service delivery to citizens to achieve a knowledge economy.
The conversations that have happened during past Connected Kenya Summit benefitted the sector and clarified its role in the delivery of the country’s economic growth as well as driving business agenda.
The theme this year was Preserving our Heritage, Pioneering Technology.
