How can we empower the next generation of women tech leaders and entrepreneurs in Africa?

 

Africa is home to one of the fastest growing populations and also one of the most vibrant and active tech scenes on the planet.  Sectors such as fintech, energy, agriculture and health are booming and innovation is all around.

 

Beyond small businesses on a local scale, female entrepreneurs are successfully launching high-tech start-ups and paving the way for a new generation of innovators.

 

How can we shine a spotlight on these leading African female tech role models and make sure that we inspire future generations whilst breaking down barriers for young African women in tech?

 

This breakfast briefing is specifically designed to provide the perfect opportunity to be inspired by some of the most creative and successful female leaders and to grow your network of women in tech, and beyond.
