TechCabal Live with Sim Shagaya is the first in a short series of virtual interviews on “Building in Tough Times”.

Globally we’re in a tough and unprecedented period, and Africa’s tech ecosystem is not going to be spared. Our “Building in Tough Times” interview series is part of our work to provide insight and thoughtful guidance to the industry. 

The series will feature experienced entrepreneurs, investors and other stakeholders sharing insights about navigating tough and uncertain times. 

In the first edition, Sim Shagaya will answer questions including:

  • How do startups survive/respond during this crisis?
  • What are the things that could kill a startup?
  • What sort of innovations and changes should the ecosystem look to in the aftermath of COVID-19?

Attendees will be able to ask Sim Shagaya questions in an interactive session about navigating times of crisis. The event is open to experienced and aspiring entrepreneurs as well as everyone else who is playing in the African technology industry.
