At the Ninth Annual African Summit on Entrepreneurship and Innovation, I had the pleasure to speak about Oracle Academy’s collaborative efforts in education and technology. The summit, held at Protea Hotel Marriott, Cape Town, South Africa, from November 22 – 24, 2023, provided a platform to highlight the significance of collaborations in the EdTech field.

I had the opportunity to lead a thought-provoking panel session titled 'Enhancing Collaboration in Education in Africa' on November 23 as an opening to panel discussions. My presentation covered Oracle Academy’s dedication to collaborating with educational institutions with the aim of enhancing student engagement, particularly among under-represented groups.

This recognition acknowledges the organization’s exemplary work in bridging the gap between education and technology, fostering innovation in the African education sector.
