AfriLabs is holding its Annual Gathering in Africa for the first time this year. The event which usually brings together representatives of the African tech ecosystem is set to take place from October 25 to October 27, 2016 at iSpace Ghana, Accra.
As the first Pan-African network of technology innovation hubs in Africa, Afrilabs connects tech hubs with investors and entrepreneurs. They also support these hubs by providing financing, mentoring, networking opportunities and other resources for high potential entrepreneurs including startups.
The Annual Gathering is a way for members and other stakeholders to meet up, learn, and build partnerships between and with hubs. Hub managers, startups, innovators & local developer communities from over 20 African countries will be there as well as other stakeholders including local, regional and international development agencies, angel investors/venture capitalists and corporate organisations.
This year, the Gathering will focus on agritech, mobile tech and e-commerce, public sector innovations, good governance and media, healthcare, education, digital penetration, and inclusive adoption. Making All Voices Count (MAVC) is a major sponsor for this year’s event and iSpace Ghana is the official host.
