Afrobytes brings together entrepreneurs, business executives, CEOs, academics, innovators, investors, venture capitalists, tech enthusiasts and media to explore business opportunities between the African tech ecosystem and players in the global tech world.

More than a conference, #Afrobytes is a marketplace to meet key players of the Global African Tech Ecosystem.

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

On June 7-8, 2018, 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 2018.

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.
