Starting today, Africa Tech Summit will begin its 3-day long programme called Africa Tech Summit Connects. The event, which will take place virtually, aims to connect the intellectual and bright minds in tech in Africa.
The event focuses on the growth and advancement of the tech ecosystem in Africa. Especially in this COVID-19 era and beyond.
Last month, a tech-focused blog – Disrupt Africa, partnered with Africa Tech Summit to oversee the startup-based sessions and pitching opportunities at the Africa Tech Summit event.
Due to the pandemic, the event will take place virtually, which means interested participants will have to connect to the event through the internet on their phones, tablets, or computers.
Africa Tech Summit aims at driving businesses and investments with top leaders in the tech space, corporate bodies, international investors, startups, and decision-makers.
The startup session of the event looks to connect investors, ventures, and other stakeholders with live investment opportunities through panel sessions and startup pitch sessions.
According to Africa Tech Summit, the event is not another webinar. It is dedicated to maximizing the time of all startups appointed to pitch their ideas.
Already, twelve startups have been chosen to pitch live at the event. Through the live pitch, every startup stands the chance of getting new customers, investors, and better opportunities through the virtual business marketplace.
The founder of Africa Tech Summit, Andrew Fassnidge, says COVID-19 has caused a dramatic change to the world. As it is, technology has become the biggest enabler of the new age.
Over the three days of the event, it will connect over 500 global digital leaders, banks, tech corporate MNOs, startups, regulatory authorities, and investors all over Africa.
