Hi Birga, you should check with Retha de la Harpe http://www.designthinkingnetwork.com/profile/RethadelaHarpe She probably knows a few.

I personally have worked with Vlisco. Although not a 100% African company they have a long history in Africa and are working hard on applying design thinking in everything they do. Check with manager brand innovation Max van Lingen http://twitter.com/#!/maxvanlingen

Hello everybody,

I am just doing a research on design thinking in companies in Africa. Can anyone help me finding companies which put design thinking into practice or even failed in doing that? Thanks in advance.

Dear Satu,
