President Julius Maada Bio envisions Sierra Leone as the "Estonia of Africa," investing in tech to supply talent across the continent. With a strategic focus on building a tech and innovation city, the country aims to create 500,000 jobs by 2028 and position digital skills as an exportable commodity. As Sierra Leone embraces cross-border collaboration and draws inspiration from successful models, it sets the stage for a collaborative tech future in Africa.
