About the Author

Nicolas Friederici is Head of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Group at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin. Michel Wahome is Responsible Research and Innovation Fellow at the University of Strathclyde. Mark Graham is Professor of Internet Geography at the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford the editor (with William H. Dutton) of Society and the Internet- How Networks of Information and Communication Are Changing Our Lives.


A wellresearched and brilliantly written book. Digital Entrepreneurship in Africa shows that the continent's startup ecosystem may be different from that of other places, but it has a richness of young people and problems that create a fertile ground for innovation and wealth creation.
- Bitange Ndemo, Professor of Entrepreneurship, University of Nairobi's School of Business

This book rises above the aspirational discourse of Africa leapfrogging developmental stages to prosperity and digs far below the Afropessimism in the limited literature that counters it. Through a nuanced and compelling empirical analysis of the rich evidence collected through an extensive engagement across Africa, Friederici, Wahome, and Graham offer novel insights into the diverse and innovative forms of digital entrepreneurialism across the continent and, importantly, why startups and innovative businesses have not scaled up sufficiently to contribute to economic growth.
- Alison Gillwald, Executive Director, Research ICT Africa; Adjunct Professor, University of Cape Town, Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance
