Africa-Israel Global Innovation Partnership
The Milken Innovation Center’s Africa-Israel Global Innovation Partnership is an integral part of the effort to develop the economic relationship between Israel and Sub-Saharan Africa, home to 6 of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world. Beginning with Rwanda, but eventually expanding to East Africa and the rest of the sub-continent, the project aims to develop partnerships between Israel and African countries through co-innovation teams, increasing access to capital markets, and the sharing of technologies and expertise. The Africa-Israel Global Innovation Partnership will help position Israel to take advantage of the opportunities of these growing markets and create economic growth in frontier and developing markets.
