African adaptation and summit

The organizers of a conference in Africa aimed at identifying, spurring and supporting local innovation are using the Barefoot MBA to help participants understand business basics. Maker Faire Africa brings together makers to drive and celebrate ingenuity, innovation and invention on the continent. MFA held a successful inaugural event in Accra, Ghana, last year and is organizing a follow-up event this summer with another in Nairobi, Kenya. We are working with MFA to give this year’s attendees — who largely have relatively low levels of formal education, live in rural areas and have businesses at varying levels of development — the knowledge they need to solve problems themselves. We also hope to attend the event.
