The Ghana Digital Innovation Week (GDIW) is a national gathering of players and stakeholders in the Digital Ecosystem with a view to discuss progress, status, showcase and celebrate milestones.
GDIW provides a platform for various actors to learn, share ideas and create connections to enhance the progress of the landscape.
The week is created and owned by actors from the private sectors, academia, policymakers, Development Partners and Civil Society Organizations and supported by The Digital Transformation Centre, an initiative by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
