Based in Cape Town, Injini establishes ed-tech think tank to aid Entrepreneurs

Injini, a Cape Town-based ed-tech non-profit, is forming a think tank to provide market research and advocate for educational reform to entrepreneurs in the field.

The Injini Think Tank (ITT) is the organization’s research, consulting, and advocacy section, according to Injini, which was co-founded by the Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative (CiTi) and has sponsored a number of accelerator programmes for ed-tech firms in Africa.

The ITT’s mission is to provide relevant market research to ed-tech entrepreneurs, assist corporate efforts in meeting their commitments to educational outcomes, and advocate for educational reform by providing and disseminating evidence-based research.

“We have always had the objective of improving educational outcomes on the continent with an approach that is centred around supporting ed-tech entrepreneurs from across Africa. Our new research offering has allowed us to expand our mandate to ensure that we are including all stakeholders in the education value chain, which we hope will drive the quality, accessibility and relevance of education in Africa in the right direction,” said Injini’s executive head Krista Davidson.

Brendan Hughes, Injini chair and CiTi director, said ed-tech businesses are a vehicle for excellent and accessible education across Africa.

“We need to support such initiatives as a collective to empower young Africans through quality education. The Injini Think Tank division is one of the solutions that we need to solve Africa’s education crisis,” he said.
