Ghanaian media entrepreneur Mac-Jordan Degadjor wants the world to see Africa in a more positive light. He believes in an Africa that is full of creativity, innovation and hope, not the outdated stereotypes of corruption, disease and poverty. Increased mobile connectivity has led to various innovation hubs across the continent that seek to collaborate to develop solutions for common problems. Degadjor believes that a connected, mobile audience of young Africans, using these new technologies and techniques, will rally to protest unjust public officials and demand more responsible government from their leaders.
