The promotion and enhancement of creative economy professions in Africa will create attractive jobs and generate considerable export earnings while promoting social inclusion and cultural diversity. Indeed, the creative economy sector in Africa has significant potential which, if properly exploited, could revitalize the economy of countries and thus become one of the most promising sectors on the continent.
Synapse participates in the economic and social development of Africa through the support of young project leaders in the creative economy sector. We thus facilitate the creation of sustainable businesses in this sector and promote the development of Africa's creative and cultural potential.
