Meet leading African tech influencers in Paris.

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

Rebecca Enonchong

Afrobytes conference is a two day program to meet African Tech actors in Paris.
We designed our conference to be an accelerator of growth and innovation between Europe and Africa.

We believe Africa and Europe can build a common destiny shaped by the best innovators of both sides.
Our mission is to bring those people, rarely in contact, together... and we do our best to gather people full of ideas around strong and inspiring content.

Interested in speaking 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.

A presentation at Afrobytes 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.
