The summit billed to commence on May 16 promises to deliver a cross-sectional view of technology advances and opportunities from across the continent with an array of keynotes, fireside chats, panels and breakout sessions from tech leaders, corporates, entrepreneurs, and investors.
Over 30 expert speakers including MTN, Ecobank, Iroko, Ventures Africa, Uprise Africa, Yegomoto, aKoma, Techpoint.ng and many more will join leading investors, start-ups, and media.
Over 250 delegates will uncover insights from Africa’s mobile, investment, fintech, innovation, media, and entertainment landscapes.
Building on Africa Tech Kigali Summit earlier this year, the annual London Summit aims to connect African tech leaders with international opportunities to drive business and investment forward.
“We are delighted to welcome back leading innovators, global investors, banks and mobile network operators from across Africa to connect in London for #ATSLDN 2018, while also providing a platform for African ventures who want to expand globally,” said Andrew Fassnidge, founder of Africa Tech Summit London.
“A lot of innovation is happening on the African continent, which sometimes the global financial markets are not even aware. The converse is also true: a lot of global capital is unaware of the African opportunity. The Africa Tech Summit in London brings these two together, the statement on the event’s website said.
The Africa Tech Summit is a convention aimed at bringing together great companies and initiatives across the continent in a bid to connect them with international ventures, investors, and entrepreneurs who are truly focused on business and investment in Africa.
The Summit was officially launched in 2016 in London. In 2018, for the first time it was held in Kigali, Rwanda.
