According to GSMA, technology in Africa's ecosystems have experienced "incredible growth" as they have rapidly expanded in recent years, with 618 active tech hubs providing "the backbone of Africa’s tech ecosystem."

An active tech hub is defined as "an organisation currently active with a physical local address, offering facilities and support for tech and digital entrepreneurs" in research conducted by Briter Bridges and the GSMA Ecosystem Accelerator programme, which identified an "innovation quadrangle" encompassed by Nigeria, South Africa, Egypt and Kenya.
