Abstract:The innovation landscape in many African economies is changing dramatically. However, up to date, few empirical knowledge exists on how domestic firms operate in this changing environment. This (explorative) chapter aims to contribute to a more nuanced picture on innovation and successful entrepreneurship in African economies by presenting some cases of innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups in Kenya and Nigeria, which are exemplary for a new generation of companies started and managed by African entrepreneurs.
