we do

Our engineers are fueling AI and machine learning innovation across numerous domains from healthcare, agriculture, finance, and human centric automation. The ADC will help to empower our partner ecosystem across the continent to build innovative solutions on the Microsoft platform.

The ADC will be unlike any other existing investment on the continent. It will help us better listen to our customers, develop locally and scale for global impact. Beyond that, it’s an opportunity to engage further with partners, academia, governments and developers – driving impact in sectors important to the continent, such as FinTech, AgriTech and OffGrid energy.
