“Accelerating digital transformation in private Education” – Daniel Viñas, Partner at Mediterrania Capital Partners

October 2020; Africa Global Funds

The current economic contraction threatens the ability of African governments to invest in education at a time when it is most imperative. This will have long-term impacts on the future of Africa’s labor force, which needs the skills gained through a high-quality, relevant education if it is to adapt to a digitized, fast-changing, and global world of work.

In this context, the private sector can play a key role by supporting education institutions as they develop the technologies and framework needed to shape and improve the learning experience on the continent.
