Under this agreement, AfriLabs will assist MISA in promoting investment opportunities in Africa, while MISA will reciprocate by aiding African entities in navigating regulations and establishing a presence in Saudi Arabia. Both parties are committed to facilitating cross-border collaboration and creating an enabling environment for innovation and growth.

Anna Ekeledo, Executive Director for AfriLabs, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, emphasizing its potential to drive innovation-led growth and open up new markets between Africa and Saudi Arabia. She highlighted the importance of platforms like LEAP in establishing strategic partnerships and fostering inclusive growth within Africa’s innovation ecosystem.
