Kenya is among the most innovative nations in Africa with such great inventions such as the use of mobile money that has revolutionized the financial inclusion sector, not only in Kenya but across other countries.

Awarding and appreciating innovators is one way of making sure that innovation is sustained by both the existing innovators and the aspiring ones.

On Thursday, ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru officially launched the 2018 Connected Summit which will host the Connected ICT Innovation Awards.

The official launch paves way for young and energetic Kenyan innovators to be feted during the Connected Kenya Summit that will be held at the Bomas of Kenya from 22nd – 24th October.

According to the organizers of the summit, the awards are meant to celebrate Kenyan entrepreneurs that have created new ICT solutions.

In overall, over 45 ICT products and services have been awarded since the inaugural awards which were held at the Connected Kenya Summit in 2011.

“Our focus for Connected 2018 is the Big 4 Agenda. Technology has a significant role to play in the Big 4 and I look forward to seeing how we can innovate across manufacturing, healthcare, housing, and food security” ICT CS Joe Mucheru said during the launch event which was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi.

Connected Kenya Summit has for the last 10 years been the foremost melting pot for top corporate executives and policymakers in the ICT industry. The conference brings together industry thought leaders to engage in emerging trends and innovations in the country’s ICT space.

Telkom Kenya is the title sponsors for this year’s Connected Summit whose theme is ‘Building for Prosperity’. Over 1,000 delegates from across East Africa are expected to attend the event which is also supported by Atlancis Technologies, Safaricom, Cellulant, Liquid Telkom and Intel among other partners.

“We are delighted to be part of this initiative which aligns with our vision to connect the people that make Kenya move by providing our customers with the best value for a simpler life, efficient business and stronger communities,” said Kris Senanu, Managing Director, Enterprise Business at Telkom Kenya.
