Africa Tech Summit London to connect Africa with Europe


The Africa Tech Summit London will take place on April 20, bringing together more than 200 tech leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, governments, trade bodies, media and leading ventures to drive investment and business between Africa and Europe.

The summit is organised by Appsafrica and supported by Linklaters LLP, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and VConnect.

It will feature over 30 speakers from companies such as Etisalat Nigeria, Safaricom Spark Fund, Orange, EcoBank, Draper Dark Flow, BitPesa, VC4Africa and Disrupt Africa.

Speakers will share insights on the mobile, fintech, consumer, media and investment opportunities across the continent.

“Our vision for Africa Tech Summit London was simple, to bring together leading tech companies, investors, and entrepreneurs to explore key sectors, connect relevant stakeholders and drive investment and business between Africa and the rest of the world,” said Andrew Fassnidge, founder of Africa Tech Summit London.

“The positive response on last year’s inaugural event from leaders within the industry endorsed the need for such a platform in London. We are very excited to welcome back leading innovators, global investors, banks and mobile network operators from across Africa to connect in London for ATSLDN 2017, while also providing a platform for African ventures who want to expand globally.”
