Only through innovations has the world truly advanced.

Only through innovations has the world truly advanced.

And the most effective way to define progress is through innovations! Humans developed telecommunications because they created the mobile phone, which is how we know it!

Today, that sector generated $3.3 trillion in revenue and almost 11 million new jobs.

How did we determine that transportation technology has advanced? Automobiles, a $2.86 trillion industry today, are a result of our innovations! approximately 7.25 million jobs are being created!

How did we know that in part thanks to the contributions of the auto sector, we had made headway in reducing global warming? In the field of electric vehicles, we innovated! Today, some of the biggest automakers in the world are investing in EV advancements, generating a ton of jobs and business opportunities.

But it’s important to remember that these wonders that actually characterize progress do not necessarily result from our desire for financial gain but rather from the bravery of inventive entrepreneurs and the risk-taking attitudes of investors.

Even when inventors and discoveries don’t want to generate money, as was the case with Nikola Tesla and the Open source movement to a significant extent, substantial revenue and tremendous profits still follow, with the potential for them to become some of the largest AUM of any company!

Innovations shouldn’t be thrown away for any reason because if we do, we’ll always end ourselves back at square one with no profits, no exits, and a lot more zeros. However, innovations will always turn out to be the most profitable development for the most daring risk-taker, even when time-consuming.

Continuing innovation will help us move forward, especially with respect to the African ecosystem.

In the words of Steve Barlett, with a little coinage “This is the Diary of a Concerned African, I hope nobody is reading, but if you are, do something on your end”
