Dare we re-imagine a powered up, technologically advanced Africa? A society with reliable electricity supply, stable telecommunications infrastructure, fast and efficient transportation – this could transform Africa and the lives of its 1.3 billion citizens. We are ready to write our own story, change the script, introduce new players and take centre stage.

Africa has benefited from unprecedented capital inflows into technology, with Nigeria as the premier destination for tech investment. The ecosystem driving tech investment and innovation sit in Lagos. Nigeria is definitely leading the change, especially in the last couple of years – we know that it’s no longer business as usual for the tech ecosystem in Africa.
