“COVID-19 has driven dramatic change across the world, and technology and innovation has become the biggest enabler for this new world, even more so across Africa.
We have witnessed the collapse of some business models, new innovative pivots, and the rapid growth and adoption of online sectors.
Africa Tech Summit Connects will unpack the latest insights, showcase leading businesses and investment deals from across the African tech ecosystem, while also connecting a global audience.”Andrew Fassnidge, Founder of Africa Tech Summit
