The Mobex Africa Innovation Awards (MIA) is an industry specific awards scheme established to honor excellence, innovation and creativity of enterprises and individuals helping transform lives and livelihood using technology and solving socio-economic problems with the deployment of ICT skills and knowledge. MIA was created to help drive the creative, technical, and professional progress of providing solutions to social challenges, enhancing businesses and evolving forms of social interactions.
According to the Margins Group C.E.O, “It’s what is in our minds that projects into the world and changes stories that would otherwise be stories of defeat. We have power in our minds and the most important thing that will change the world is the power of innovation not invention. Invention is something that bright people do, innovation is something that creative people do by putting bright people’s ideas into work in order to advance social inclusion and economic progress”
As he dedicated the award to the Margins Team, both past and present, and to those who have been a part of the 28-year journey, he remarked “The past 28 years of the Margins Group has been a remarkable story of such creative innovators, those who seek always to think outside the box and to make the impossible possible.”
He also urged young entrepreneurs to be encouraged to “chart new paths that are not related to what they learnt in school, but out of the desire to change things and move things forward”
