    Abstract

    This paper advances policies for promoting the intraregional and international investment prospects of African digital multinationals in the post-pandemic era. Based on the building blocks of organizational capabilities, funding access, digital infrastructure and regulatory environment, it advocates a more globally inclusive investment landscape in which African-born digital multinationals would no longer be a rarity. Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 crisis and its amplification of humankind’s shared and digital future, policymakers and influential stakeholders at all levels are challenged to intensify the push for a more inclusive global digital economy.
