About DAF


The Disrupting Africa Forum (DAF) is an institution that champions, supports and actively works with African innovators to bring their home-grown innovations to scale in an effort to address Africa’s unique challenges and practically change lives.

DAF is dedicated to helping African cities utilise African innovation to solve African problems, and seeks to turn the continents challenges into opportunities. Our ambition is to position Africa as an innovative continent with innovation as a core focus.

Every two years, DAF identifies a major challenge in key cities across the continent and brings together innovators with solutions that disrupt an identified sector, directly contribute to transformation in those cities, and by extension positively impact the continent’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
