Event description

Description

Please note: this is a repeat version of our previous event "Using the African digital workforce to propel your digital transformation". Due to high demand we decided to organize it again, to give everyone who missed the last event (for whatever reason) the opportunity to attend.

---
When US giants like Google, Microsoft and Facebook invest millions in the African tech sector we should take note. This is not only driven by the desire to conquer the future African digital consumer. There is also a huge opportunity to cultivate and recruit African tech talent to fill the international talent gap.

NABC members Tunga and Incentro Africa are playing into this trend. Together with Booking.com they invite you to join the African Tech Round-table on Thursday April 26th 10:00am at the Booking.com offices in Amsterdam, to learn from among others Booking.com how using an African digital workforce can help you propel the digital transformation of your business. There is room for max 24 participants.
