Event Details

Now, more than ever, the world is realizing the potential for innovation for and by the people of Africa. The focus has shifted to a dialogue about how to create an ecosystem that's conducive to local innovation and development to empower local entrepreneurs, creatives, organizations and individuals invested in the future of their nations, communities and livelihoods.

To do this, we need a systemic understanding of the current system, what needs to change, and who needs to be involved. It needs to be a global conversation but one that needs to start and be lead by Africa.

It's an effort to get people to see what's happening, and we're looking to turn some heads.

The format will take place in 5-15 minute talks with plenty of room for discussion and discovery in the conversation the event will cover 4 main spheres from the Summit:
