#Afrobytes is an annual international tech conference connecting business and technology leaders, founders, investors and policy experts with the fastest-growing African tech startups.

Join us to discover, learn, network, and be inspired by the latest trends in the African tech ecosystem.

On June 8-9 2017, people from all over the world who believe that the next big digital and human adventure will take place in Africa, will participate at Afrobytes tech conference 2017.

Africa is quickly changing and African consumers are becoming global trendsetters. Analysts agree that the rising African middle class offers huge market opportunities.

Growth in business technology across the continent is leading the way. Today, Africa leapfrogs over old technologies and is catching up in the technological race.

We gather startups, founders, investors, and executives who have a passion for growth and innovation.

If you aim to find yourself at the starting point of the African digital growth curve, to innovate for transformational user experiences, or to accompany the African consumer emergence and digital empowerment, then Afrobytes offers you a vibrant and motivating framework to connect with people like you.
