WHAT TO EXPECT?
TECH START-UPS ARE STARTING TO PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN AFRICA.
This year we go across the country and continent to find the most amazing tech and tech-enabled start-ups that are solving Africa’s problems. We unpack ecosystem realities and tap into the international success stories and country conditions that make for attractive entrepreneurial growth.
We will take a deep dive into the start-up landscape in Africa and hear from countries and the start-ups on what support mechanisms enable their growth and success.
We also dive deep with seasoned experts, founders and investors from across the start-up and innovation ecosystem who have been-there-done-that and kicked-butt.
