The 5th AfriLabs Annual Gathering will take place virtually from the 12th to 14th October 2020.

This year’s AfriLabs Annual Gathering is a domestic resource mobilization call to set a new agenda to achieve new goals that destabilize the status quo,
instead of adopting an already existing agenda not tailor-made for the African society.

The 3-day Gathering will feature sessions with focused panel discussions on thematic topics, keynote addresses, presentation sessions, multiple parallel
workshops and networking sessions.

This year, Djembe Consultants in partnership with AfriLabs will launch a report on the African Innovation Ecosystem covering trends and opportunities, the potential impact of the COVID 19 pandemic and the framing of a regional policy discussion.

Mozilla will also host a roundtable discussion during the Gathering on understanding the local needs, expertise and capabilities of African countries and explore under-served issues and areas that could spur the next generation of innovation in the region.

KTN Global Alliance will also host a masterclass to answer investment readiness questions whilst providing advice and guidance for organisations
seeking funding.

A grant of 15,000 Euros will be awarded to 17 Innovation Hubs across Africa under the AfriLabs Capacity Building Programme sponsored by the AFD through its Digital Africa seed at the Capacity Building Awards Night on the last day of the Gathering.

Over 1000 hubs, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, academia, VCs, ESOs, investors, training and legal consultants, business/professional
development experts and creatives are billed to attend this year’s edition.
