The conference, which aims to solidify the links between the African tech sector and Europe, is coming back to Paris for the second year running. Founded by Haweya Mohamed and Ammin Youssouf, it will bring together many of the driving actors and innovators on the tech scene.
Delays at Station F, the biggest startup campus in the world, have meant the conference has relocated to the Medef conference centre in the centre of Paris.

You’ll still be able to see an impressive array of speakers – from Ebele Okobi, Facebook’s Public Policy Director for Africa, to Toro Orero, Managing Partner at DDF, a Silicon Valley VC fund (backed by Tim Draper the founder of the American venture capital firm DFJ) that invests in African startups looking to scale internationally. Kerrr-ching!
We’re also particularly looking forward to seeing Charlene Chen, Chief Operating Officer at BitPesa; Miriam Quash, the BBC’s Editorial Digital Lead for Africa; and Kenfield Griffith, CEO and Co-Founder of the Kenya-based mobile survey app mSurvey.
It’s taking place from June 8 – 9. You can get tickets here.
