Africa Gathering: Festival of Technologies: Start it! Build it!

Africa Gathering’s annual conference is back on 15, June in London. In collaboration with the Indigo Trust Foundation, the day provides an opportunity to delegates and speakers to share their ideas under Africa Gathering’s palaver tree to discuss the start-up culture across Africa and to showcase some of the great start-up ideas that have emerged in recent times on the continent. The one-day conference seeks to reframe the debate around Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship inAfrica. It will demonstrate how the creative African cheetahs are currently taking the lead in developing technology solutions currently changing and improving lives.

This year’s event will encourage UK investors, to start looking seriously at African start-ups and learn from the managers of the hubs and incubators where growth is increasing rapidly. The programme will involve a mix of keynote speakers from Africa, Google UK, Indigo Trust and the World Bank.  The morning will see three parallel workshops and breakout groups brainstorming along different themes until the afternoon and to end with a plenary session with presentations from a variety of speakers from Africa and the World Bank Team. One highlight of the day promises to be a Group Think and Brainstorming sessions on Africa’s Start UP Future (Who is starting and building it in Africa?)
