WhiteHat Magazine is seeking articles to be published in our Summer 2018 edition: Africa Rising. Articles should cover stories of innovation, entrepreneurship, and opportunity on the continent, from coding boot camps to startups disrupting finance and energy sectors.

Articles should be original and not have been previously published in any other format — print or online. Articles may address topics including, but not limited to: Challenges and opportunities for startups in Africa generally or specific African countries; Profiles of people, especially women, making innovative changes in Africa; The dialogue shift from foreign aid to foreign investment; The role of aid organizations (UN, USAID, etc) in spurring economic development; Social entrepreneurship initiatives (either those that are effective or those that are poorly thought out); Progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. Please avoid wonky or insider language, and remember that you are writing for a global audience. Do not include footnotes, endnotes, or a list of references. Hyperlinks are welcome; however, please do not use Wikipedia as a reference. Before submitting, please read our submission guidelines! Article pitches should be submitted through this form. Pitches are due by July 6, 2018. Final drafts are due July 13,...Read More

From the editor: At the current rate of change, it will take almost a century before women reach equality with men. Women aren’t taken seriously as entrepreneurs or corporate leaders.

It’s time to create a new model, where nontraditional investors and entrepreneurs build companies that are based on their diverse perspectives, values, and needs. Introducing the Ascendant Economy. Our Spring 2018 edition, “Introducing the Ascendant Economy” For all of 2018, we will be donating 10% of every new subscription to non-profit organizations that empower women. – Chrisella Herzog, Editor...Read More

In the survey conducted with research firm Survey Sampling International in September 2017, they asked about Americans’ fears of robots and automation affecting their jobs.

From the editor: As we watched news reports of hurricanes, earthquakes, and flooding disasters from the past few months, we at WhiteHat Magazine asked ourselves what technology was doing to build resilience in developing areas–and what it could do to help disaster-struck areas to recover.
