The African Tech Industry is a community who truly believe that the next big digital and human adventure will take place in Africa. Its stakeholders are committed to creating a better living through digital innovation and are aligned with Tim Draper’s insight: “Africa has a unique opportunity to leap frog and create new paths for the world to follow”.

Building successful technological strategies in Africa starts with a deep understanding of what is valuable to people in their social and cultural context. To scale up your company in Africa, proposing applications that have a transformative potential to improve conditions for people and businesses is mandatory.
