Entrepreneur registers design of Community Tablet
A Mozambican entrepreneur, Dayn Amade, has successfully registered the design of his Community Tablet vehicle with the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office. This will protect his design from imitation for up to 25 years and makes taking legal action against infringement of copyright more straightforward.

The Community Tablet is a trailer containing solar-powered computer equipment with touchscreen displays. Its design means that it can be pulled by a 4x4 vehicle, a tractor, or can even be animal-drawn to get it into very remote areas. It consists of a powerful sound system, one giant high-resolution screen and five further touchscreens.

The trailer began operation in Mozambique in 2016 and since then Amade’s company Kamaleon has promoted digital literacy training and internet access. It has also been involved in delivering health and voter education campaigns to remote locations in partnership with Population Services International, the National Elections Commission (CNE), and the Electoral Administration Technical Secretariat (STAE).

In the run-up to gaining official recognition from Britain’s patent office, Amade has received mentoring and support from the Duke of York through his pitch@palace scheme. This led to further assistance from the British High Commission in Maputo and access to influential business people.

Commenting on Amade’s development as an international entrepreneur, the Mozambican High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Filipe Chidumo, told AIM, “it is very gratifying to see this talented young Mozambican entrepreneur receive such high-level mentoring and business support. His mobile Community Tablet has great potential and the recognition by the patent office here in London means that his invention will be protected. I am sure this achievement will encourage other Mozambican young entrepreneurs to reach higher levels of excellence in their work”.

The potential for the Community Tablet is huge, with less than ten per cent of the African continent having access to the internet. In Mozambique alone, it is estimated that 24 million people are without an internet connection.
