The MEST Africa Summit is back this year for it’s 4th edition, in partnership with Microsoft!

Join us June 10-12 in the home of our newest incubator, Nairobi, Kenya. Hear thought leaders from across the continent discuss key topics impacting entrepreneurs and investors in the tech space, from the impact of AI and machine learning on Africa’s workforce, to the role of tech in cultivating a more energy-efficient Africa, to ways data is being used to enable financial inclusion on the continent and more.

The two-day Summit that will take place on the 11th - 12th June 2019, with a welcome drinks reception on June 10th. The first conference day will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel and will include panels and deep dive discussions on how key sectors and innovations are contributing to the ecosystem. We will conclude the day with the MEST Africa Challenge Finals, with pitches by regional winners from Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Cote d’Ivoire and Kenya who will be competing for $50K in equity investment and the chance to join the MEST community.
