The world is like a race track filled with hurdles one must overcome.

With technology, these hurdles have become challenges that are solvable.

And so, as we imagine, we keep creating; from toy cars to self driven cars, from baby dolls to AI bots, from stacking papers to saving on clouds.

Thereby opening a portal filled with opportunities for all willing to explore.

This exactly is what fuels our mandate of Inclusion at Techplus. 

Techplus is a platform that connects, fosters and enables tech inclusion for social change and enterprise and this we have achieved through the years via Events, Esports, Content and Media, and Consulting

This year’s 2019 edition is themed Digital Social Innovation. Why DSI?  

Up until recently, it would have been mandatory to speak and understand more than one language to be able to connect and survive within a foreign culture. But now, with Neural Text To speech (Neural TTS) in Artificial Intelligence and Mixed reality that gap has been bridged. This is just one of many that exemplify DSI. DSI is simply proffering innovative solutions to how we survive as social beings, dependent on one another across sectors. With this at the top of our minds, we thought it well to curate a platform where these conversations that propel and evoke solution-based thinking can be had hence, Digital Social Innovation.

Here are five facts about Techplus 2019: Digital Social Innovation
