The Details

LONDON SPECIAL EDITION - Hosted by the BBC Africa Team, Africa Gathering celebrates its fifth anniversary with a conference showcasing the role of African women in the technology sector in Africa, and ideas that have emerged in recent times across the continent, and to discuss some of the challenges still present around funding and investment.

Also this year, through a special series of roundtables, we will highlight and debate the rise of women in technology across Africa.

Africa Gathering 2013 will be a key event for women innovators and investors who want to discover and invest in African technology ecosystems.

"We will demonstrate how African innovators -- especially women -- are moving fast and taking the lead in developing amazing local technological solutions," said conference curator Marieme Jamme

"We also aim to demystify the relationship between investors and African entrepreneurs."

During the two-day event experts and important thinkers will inspire delegates with in-depth panels, educational presentations and thought leadership sessions, which aim to develop and build relationships. By highlighting grassroots, emerging technologies, and solutions relevant to Africa, we wish to offer a new perspective that will encourage active involvement from Africa-focused businesses, investors, and funders.

You will have a chance to take peek at this year's line-up and network with some remarkable thinkers of Africa. Remember to get your ticket early, stake your claim on a place to meet and mingle with our network.

Africa Gathering London

Africa Gathering is a movement to see African ideas and innovations recognised, used and celebrated. Drawing inspiration from the African Baobab tree, where people traditionally gather to share knowledge, debate issues and learn from each other, African Gathering events – from London to Washington and Nairobi – bring together African change-makers and all those passionate about Africa’s development.
