AFRICAN KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION EXCHANGE

Join Mr. Tunji Lardner, Ford Foundation Fellow, for a unique lecture and brainstorming experience. 

Globally recognized media and communications expert Tunji Lardner has held prestigious new media fellowships at some of the world’s leading universities, including Columbia and Stanford. As the inaugural Global TED Fellow, and founder of WangoNet, he has mentored many young netpreneurs in Nigeria’s burgeoning CivicTech space.

Mr. Lardner’s latest and most ambitious project is:

How do you design, build and operate an online digital platform that addresses the knowledge and information asymmetry that exists between Africa and the rest of the world?

All are invited to this event to contribute ideas to a great cause.

This event is sponsored by SPEA, the IUPUI School of informatics, the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and the Office of International Affairs.
