Afrobytes started as a simple idea in 2016: Let’s connect the African Tech community with other global tech ecosystems.

Afrobytes offers an international event series like no other. Industry decision-makers and startups looking to transform the African markets will connect all across the world to shape the future of tech in Africa.


Dear Participants and Partners,

In extension of our mission of bridging the African Tech Community with the Global Tech Industry, we were earnestly looking forward to meeting you in our series of US events slated for March.

Unfortunately, the rapid evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak has presented with new realities. In consideration of the impact of this on our partners and the potential contribution of gatherings to escalating the spread of the epidemic, we have decided to cancel our events slated for March 16 & 18 (New York) and March 19 (Washington).

We have also decided to postpone our Annual African Tech Industry Marketplace. AFROBYTES 5th EDITION WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ON OCTOBER 8, 2020.

In the interim, we will continue to work hard to bring you a unique African Tech event.

Above all, we wish you good health and safety.
Thank you, and kind regards.

The Afrobytes Team.
