What skills does Africa need to succeed?

Let's brainstorm and discuss innovative ways to groom high quality local talent across the continent. What are the skills 21st century Africa needs, and how best to get them? Less than 10% of Africans get any tertiary education, yet there are tens of thousands of unfilled jobs in SA in programming alone. The formal education system doesn't churn out enough high quality talent to keep up with Africa's growth, and jobs that could give Africa's young people great careers are instead exported to other continents. What skills do you need in your business, and how are you bringing them in? How can the digital economy do better to onboard young people into the careers of tomorrow?
