Africa Tech Summit (ATS) is set to celebrate its 10th edition online, connecting a global audience with Africa Tech Summit Connects taking place 20-22nd October via mobile app and desktops, strictly without the need for face masks.
Following successful annual Summits in Kigali, London, Washington DC, and Shanghai, Africa Tech Summit Connects will continue to drive business, investment and connections with tech leaders, corporates, international investors, start-ups, and decision makers.
“COVID-19 has driven dramatic change across the world, and technology and innovation has become the biggest enabler for this new world, even more so across Africa. We have witnessed the collapse of some business models, new innovative pivots, and the rapid growth and adoption of online sectors. Africa Tech Summit Connects will unpack the latest insights, showcase leading businesses and investment deals from across the African tech ecosystem, while also connecting a global audience,” said Andrew Fassnidge, Founder of Africa Tech Summit.
This exclusive virtual business Summit is not “another webinar” and aims to maximise each delegate’s time with AI-powered smart matchmaking, live 1:1 video meetings, and the ability to find new customers, innovative products, investors, and new opportunities in the virtual business marketplace.
Three days of informative content will drive interaction and showcase the latest developments on the continent across Fintech; Investment; Startups; Regulation and Policy; Blockchain; Payments and Credit; Financial Inclusion; Connectivity; EdTech and AgriTech, with insights shared from industry leaders and investors including IFC, London Stock Exchange, TLCom, EchoVC, Accion, BlueMoon Ethiopia, Kenya Capital Markets Authority, Twiga Foods, Coca-Cola, Stanbic, and many more announced.
The Africa Start-up Summit sessions, once again powered by Disrupt Africa, will connect investors and ventures through curated panel sessions and startup pitching sessions, with live investment opportunities.
“We are delighted to once again partner with Africa Tech Summit to provide you with the chance to tap into Africa’s growing startup scene, and connect with investors, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders, from the comfort of your home or office. We hope this “new normal” of digital events will serve to increase access to platforms like Africa Tech Summit to more and more small businesses,” said Tom Jackson and Gabriella Mulligan, co-founders of Disrupt Africa.
The event will connect 500+ global digital leaders, tech corporates, MNOs, banks, startups, investors, regulators and leading tech ventures from across the African tech ecosystem over three days of knowledge sharing, quality networking and business development. Register here.
