The event offers networking opportunities for professionals in various sectors such as cloud and IoT, cybersecurity, digital health, future finances, consumer technology, telecoms, and AI.

Despite a global slowdown in venture capital, African tech startups raised $6.5 billion in 2022. This signifies a growing interest in the continent from international investors. According to London venture capitalist Breega, the African tech ecosystem is comparable to Europe in the early 2010s with promising GDP growth forecasts driving further investments in Africa.

The event will also highlight entrepreneurs and founders from Africa with the North Star Africa startup showcase.
