Connecting African innovators to global networks
We host events and provide networking opportunities for innovators and investors across the UK and African tech ecosystems.
Coalition for Digital Equality Forum
As part of a consortium of partners, we hosted the Coalition for Digital Equality (CODE) Forum, an online event bringing together experts, practioners and academics in digital inclusion, entrepreneurship and impact investment from across Africa, the UK and the globe to discuss collaborative approaches to bridging the digital gender divide.
Key discussion points included:
Adoption of digital technologies in Africa has given rise to a new digital economy which is creating millions of jobs and economic opportunities. However African women face significant barriers to participating and benefiting from the digital economy.
Hosted by the Africa Technology Business Network and GenPol, this roundtable brought together technology, business and impact leaders for a discussion about the role that business can play in bridging the digital gender gap in Africa as well as the social and economic opportunities that this creates.
How can we build thriving local ecosystems that can effectively support the growth of world class entrepreneurs and startups in Africa? This was the focus of our discussion with participants at our Africa Tech Ecosystem roundtable in Accra. Hosted at iSpace, the event brought together startup hub leaders, entrepreneurs & other ecosystem players to discuss the needs as well as share ideas on how to drive the ecosystem forward.
ATBN brought together Africa-focused investors in London for an in-depth discussion around driving impact investment into the African tech sector. The high-level breakfast event attracted speakers and delegates from leading private equity, impact investment and venture capital funds.
Over 100 Africa-focused investors, entrepreneurs, tech and development leaders gathered for our second annual Africa Technology Business Forum in London. Discussions included the role of African Governments in driving innovation, how investors can tailor their approach to the needs of the continent, unlocking the under-served market potential of African women among others.
