Event description
VivaTech, Europe's biggest tech event held in Paris annually, is holding an exclusive meetup in Nairobi!

About this Event

Africa’s uniquely youthful population – around 200 million people are between the ages of 15 and 24 - is yielding a new wave of tech pioneers who are transforming the lives of their fellow Africans. For the third consecutive year, Viva Technology, happening in Paris 11-13 June, will be diving deep into Africa’s booming tech scene. And in the meantime the VivaTech Tour is on the road, hosting meetups to discuss challenges and opportunities for Africa’s startup ecosystem and to find the best way to build bridges between Africa, Europe and the rest of the planet.

We're partnering up with MEST Incubator Nairobi for this event !
