Meet African Tech Industry Leaders in Paris.

"It's the first time we have such an event in Paris"

Rebecca Enonchong

Afrobytes Marketplace is a two-day program to meet African Business and Tech Leaders in Paris.
We designed our Marketplace to be an accelerator of growth and innovation between Europe, Africa and beyond.

We believe Africa and Europe can build a common destiny shaped by the best innovators on both sides.
Our mission is to be the bridge and bring those people, rarely in contact.

Interested in showcasing your business at Afrobytes?

Afrobytes is a great opportunity to influence the hearts and minds of entrepreneurs, investors and tech enthusiasts from around the world who focus on African markets.

It is an opportunity to share your experience about tech developments in Africa: information, exclusive content, personal experience, case studies...

We want you to share something memorable about your experience of making an impact on people's lives.

Below, the first African Tech Industry Leaders who confirmed for Afrobytes 2018.
