 Le continent africain apparaît comme la nouvelle frontière mondiale du développement numérique. Ce développement provoque une nouvelle impulsion entrepreneuriale en Afrique, et notamment en Afrique francophone. Mais ce potentiel reste très largement méconnu en Europe ainsi qu'en France. 

The African continent appears to be the new global frontier of digital development. This development has caused a new entrepreneurial impulse in Africa, particularly in Francophone Africa. But this potential remains largely unknown in Europe and in France.

To change this, Samir, author of the blog Startup BRICS [1] [fr] that specializes in start-ups in the emerging countries, organized a field mission called the TechAfrique project [2] to identify and list technology initiatives, start-ups, Fablabs projects, and other co-working places of tech creativity in Francophone Africa and Kenya.
