The Centre for Disruptive Technologies is a global network orchestrator. We connect disruptive ideators, thought leaders, technical experts and game-changing innovators to businesses, government, academic institutions and civil society institutions in order to create new market opportunities and bankable evidence.


At CDT, we believe in African ideation and innovation. We believe in the power of game changing ideas that can transform businesses and the African landscape. Ideas are our business and Africa transformed through the positive power of people connected by disruptive tech is our vision.


We are passionate about helping businesses  grow. Existing businesses can determine their readiness for the impact of disruptive tech by taking our Disruptor Index. We then help businesses to "future-proof" their business through our Disruptive Innovation Strategic Framework.


We've been in "stealth mode" growing our global network and developing the technology platform to connect brilliant people with pressing challenges.  We invite you to be in touch to explore how to tap into our network, or to join.
