GOTO Chicago 2018 – Frugal Innovation

Talk by Betty in Wired Women 2014

With inflation rising all over the world, businesses must think of innovative ways to lower the cost of production or the solution they are offering, this is what we call frugal innovation.

The International Center for Frugal Innovation describes it as “the development of smart design solutions. That can bring relatively advanced products and systems services. Within the reach of millions of people with a minimal income. It is about (re) designing products, services, and systems at substantially lower costs. And with a longer lifespan while there is no loss of functionality”.

In Africa, developing ways to lower the price of production and offering inexpensive solutions is not enough. Africa has challenges hindering its success, from literacy to poverty, electricity, and other infrastructural setbacks.

A solution that will target different classes of society will indeed not be a walk in the park.

To come up with a successful solution, especially in the software development field or technology. You need to acknowledge the challenges that people are facing on the continent. And up with solutions.

Simply put, you have to know how we live, and the challenges. We face daily, and how we can identify ways to make a change and solve these issues. 

An example of the challenges faced in Africa is financial. It’s no secret that even though Africa is one of the richest continents, we are also counted among the world’s poorest. The solutions we need are the ones that save us money. Not the ones that drain our bank accounts or mobile wallets. 

This brings us to another issue;

Payments

Unlike in any other continent, online payments are not a widely adopted option in Africa. This is where “Frugal Innovators” stepped in and saved the day with innovative ways to collect payments through scratch cards, the best payment method that had huge success and revolutionized payment in Africa is M-PESA currently M-PESA has 51 million happy customers across the continent.

M-PESA

An additional contribution of “frugal innovation” in Africa is a solution. That was achieved by The Cobalt Partners. Where we revolutionized the ways of medical file storage facilities. Creating a database that made accessing these files much easier. 

In the past, it would take three hours of manual searching to find a single file. Sometimes the files would be ruined, but they cut that time to 10 minutes and saved people from paying the storage fee again.

A vital consideration in developing applications for the African market is that Africa is a mobile-focused continent, which means users will value mobile-friendly
