What we're about

Open data is new name given to a timeless concept: it is information accessible by anyone. Open data is a growing global resource with potential to grow business, improve quality of government service, and increase innovation in healthcare, education, transportation, agriculture, gender equality. The Africa Open Data Community is a convening space for tech industry, small businesses, journalists, civic tech, entrepreneurs, researchers, students, IT solution providers, banks, telecoms, insurance companies, NGO's, donor organizations, and local and national governments to connect virtually and in person to share advances in open data, share lessons, and form new collaborations. We seek to serve as a convener of experts, upcoming actors, and newcomers to share experiences and collaborate to improve use and quality of open data by and for Africa.
