In 1997 a group of Africans from West and East Africa sat down one afternoon in Santa Clara, California, USA and talked about ways to get involved in the continent’s development. They were then working for pharmaceutical and high technology companies in the Silicon Valley of California. From that afternoon’s discussion a new company, Technology Solutions for Africa, Inc. was born in February 1998. Technology Solutions for Africa, Inc., with its three divisions: TSA, Inc.; Consulting Group; and African Trade Specialists, has never deviated from the precepts agreed to on that afternoon in 1997. It has grown with dedicated experts from all over the world.
