Accra, Ghana – January 12th – RSVP

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:

  • Technology’s impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • Private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.


Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people – and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
