Automation is catching on with African companies. The entire process of intellectual property registration has been automated for citizens to secure their innovations. Initially this process was started off in Kenya with due support from Microsoft. This process is now being replicated in eighteen other countries in Africa. The system was developed under Microsoft’s 4Afrika initiative program in partnership with the Kenya Copyright Board (Kecobo) in June 2015 through the IP Hub platform.
