Titi Akinsanmi speaks as ANSICTA

The Inaugural Anambra Stakeholders Innovation Summit (AISS), Nigeria’s foremost innovation conversation platform made its debut on Wednesday, July 28th, 2021 bringing together stakeholders in government, public policy, business, finance, academia, and technology space across Nigeria and the  Diaspora. The summit was hosted by the Anambra State Information and Communication Technology  Agency (ANSICTA) and organized by Dragon Africa. 

In the closing dialogue between Obi Asika (AISS Convener and Founder, Dragon Africa) and Titi  Akinsanmi Head Government Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) West and Francophone Africa at Google;  Titi noted that we have to be intentional in our storytelling and narratives to attract needed investments and reminded us to incorporate the Female gender in all our plans.  

Obi Asika noted that his key takeaways were the urgent need for educational reform, the clear need to make Anambra and the Region more discoverable, promote destination marketing and push all States to invest in their brands. In order to attract investment, investors have to be aware of your opportunity and Anambra has many assets and stories it needs to share and engage. The summit was fortunate to 

have Michael Orekyeh (COO of ANSICTA) as the summit MC to keep the day moving and manage all the speakers and panelists.
