As an emerging leader in global communications between Africa’s tech community and the rest of the world, AB2020 is proud to be co-ordinating the continent’s delegation for the Global Ecosystems Summit – an official London Tech Week event to be held in June 2018.
The Global Ecosystems Summit (GES) will feature six regional delegations, including Israel, Europe, Latin America, Hong Kong/China and Africa, each comprising a curated mix of startups, tech companies, VCs/investors, trade bodies, and other ecosystem enablers.
London’s Indigo at the O2 will host the event which is designed as a business development and networking platform to explore partnership and investment opportunities not just in the UK but also simultaneously link in with members from other global ecosystems.
London Tech Week (11th-17th June) is Europe’s leading technology and startup festival providing a platform for creating partnerships spread across multiple events around the City, bringing together over 50,000 delegates from across the world.
Now is an exciting time for tech in Africa; from the proliferation of mobile services to the emergence of locally developed and socially impactful innovations.
As the industry blossoms, peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing and international partnerships will play a crucial role, and London Tech Week provides a broad networking platform to explore tangible business, investment and partnership opportunities for African tech companies with a global focus.
We’re inviting a selection of start/scale-ups, accelerator leaders, tech influencers and policy makers from across Africa to join their counterparts from across the world to gain exposure and benefit from this high-value event to be held on 14th June.
Participants will also benefit from access to a range of workshops, industry events and networking opportunities during London Tech Week
