Asante Africa Foundation Initiative to Bring Investment and Technology to Africa

Oakland, CA, February 26, 2014 --(PR.com)-- The challenge for an international business today is finding the best way to innovate with technology to differentiate your organization in the market.

“Technology has become one of the most profound influences on the way people live, people are educated, and business is conducted,” said Erna Grasz, CEO of Asante Africa Foundation. “We want to use technology as a catalyst for the next generation of African producers and consumers, and help them take risks, think big, and succeed.”

"For businesses the ability to deliver products and content is becoming secondary to packaging content in new ways that will attract people to their products and services," Grasz said. “In Africa international business are now relying more and more on external organizations to provide them with the means and partnerships to deliver products and content.” Many businesses are partnering with not-for-profit organizations that have experience connecting international business with local community requirements. Asante Africa Foundation, through its Technology in the Classroom Initiative, is partnering with local governments, NGO’s, and the international business community to bring Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to rural areas of Africa in a manner that fits in with the environment and culture of the local community.”

The Technology in the Classroom Initiative plays a significant role in exposing the international business community to investment opportunities in Africa, enabling them to participate in the commercial benefits of Africa’s ICT revolution. But the difference here is that the Technology in the Classroom Initiative is all about making a difference for the people of Africa. As one of the continent’s leading technology enablers for the effective delivery of technology and content, Asante Africa Foundation provides support for the advancement of the African economy by using technology and content to ensure that future producers and consumers have the skills to compete.
