Firm expands innovation hunt to 11 African countries

Edniesal Consulting Ltd has expanded its search for the best innovative technologies on the continent to 11 African countries.

The firm, which is also the convener of the CIO and C-Suite Awards Africa, also announced the expansion of its awards to 11 countries. The awards aim to recognise and celebrate executive leaders driving technological innovation across the continent.

“We are looking at different executive positions that are involved in implementing innovations around technology. What we are trying to achieve as an objective is to create a niche and ecosystem for the African community where we can have innovations that can compete with global companies like Microsoft and Cisco,” said Oluwakayode Adigun, chairman of the Board of Directors for the CIO and C-Suite Awards and CIO Club Africa.

The firm said the countries include Ghana, Rwanda, Senegal, Tunisia, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Morocco, Egypt, Zambia, and Nigeria. The firm seeks to celebrate the achievements of CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, CISOs, and IT heads delivering exceptional results in their industries.

Abiola Laseinde, convener of the CIO and C-Suite Awards and CIO Club Africa, added, “TCCA actively organises round table meetings, seminars, and conferences to educate the public and sustain industry excellence. Everything we do in terms of selection is incredibly laced with integrity and professionalism. If you are going to project your winners, you expect them to compete favorably with others from other parts of the world.”
