Africa Tech Summit, the tech conference focused on connecting businesses and driving investments within Africa’s tech ecosystem, will host its fifth edition on the 15th to 16th of February 2023 at the Sarit Expo Centre in Nairobi.
“After a sold-out out Summit in 2022, we are excited to welcome back 1000+ tech leaders, investors, and international players in Nairobi for two days. This year’s Africa Tech Summit will feature 150 speakers across two stages, masterclass sessions, an exhibition and multiple networking events to drive business and investment forward,” said Andrew Fassnidge, Director, Africa Tech Summit.
With Africa’s tech ecosystem projected to grow from an estimated $115bn to $712bn by 2050 according to Endeavor Nigeria’s recent report, the Summit again connects tech leaders and stakeholders, including investors, corporates, mobile operators, fintech, DeFi and crypto ventures, start-ups, developers, regulators, and policymakers to do business across the continent.
The 2023 flagship summit hosts three tracks; the Africa Money & DeFi Summit, the Africa Startup Summit and the Africa Mobile & App Summit, which brings together tech players from across the continent. As the Fintech space continues to experience 20 per cent growth year on year, with the market estimated to reach $40bn by 2025 according to MasterCard, the Africa Money & DeFi Summit will continue to uncover new opportunities in FinTech, Web3, and Decentralized Finance (DeFi).
The Africa Startup Summit, which connects tech startups with investors and corporates, will unpack opportunities and challenges within the ecosystem while showcasing leading ventures. The Africa Mobile & App Summit will explore new technologies and solutions in the African mobile ecosystem and share insights on the future of mobile growth and trends in Africa.
Applications for the fifth edition of Pitch Live are now open, with 10 African startups selected to pitch their company and solution on stage to an audience of investors and corporates. Applications are open until January 16, 2023 and are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
