Dr. Stella Bvuma

"The digital economy requires more than a mobile device, it requires high quality, high-capacity internet access. Connectivity needs to be discussed before addressing the impact of technology in Africa. One of the most common challenges is small businesses’ access to market. Access needs technology which needs infrastructure. Those responsible in that space need to come on board."
