"Open Core" lab for sustainable digital economies

Find, interpret, model and share meticulous insights on what, why and how informal X in Africa is responding to digital technology.

trendsAf is a digital economy research lab curating insights on how markets, policy and people in emerging interact with digital systems. We are a collective of researchers, economists and data wranglers learning how to make digital economies work in emerging markets.

By working with and translating academic research and also collating public and private data, we are building an open-core data library for digital innovation in Africa.
