During the 2018 Afrobytes Marketplace edition, we launched a new business meeting format. We named it "Pitch My Country".

Learn from the digital champions!

Local experts sharing their market experience

To succeed on the continent, companies must learn from the failures and successes of others.

Innovation hubs, startups, and tech companies are continuing to spring up across the continent and are developing services that revolutionize commerce, transportation, farming, healthcare… In short, all areas of human activities.

We launched “Pitch My Country” business meetings to connect Afrobytes Marketplace’s participants with African tech leaders representing their markets. Their experience held valuable lessons for others aspiring to capture the opportunities in some of the world’s fastest-growing consumer markets.

Every Tech Ecosystem has a dream team. Meet the 2018 Ethiopia and Nigeria tech ambassadors.
