Africa Tech Summit London (ATSLDN) is a leading African tech event in Europe providing unrivalled insight and networking with the African tech ecosystem.
ATSLDN brings together over 200 tech leaders, international investors, entrepreneurs, governments, trade bodies, media and leading ventures to drive investment and business between Africa and Europe.
‘The positive response on last year’s inaugural event from leaders within the industry endorsed the need for such a platform in London,’ explains Andrew Fassnidge, founder of Africa Tech Summit 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,’ he added.
The rapid expansion of mobile and internet penetration across Africa is providing global opportunities for tech ventures that previously did not exist. Over the next five years, 168 million new mobile subscribers will be connected across Africa, reaching 725 million by 2020. From artificial intelligence (AI) to hardware, transport to mobile education, tech is changing Africa rapidly.
It was therefore no surprise that Mark Zuckerberg finally made a highly publicised visit to Nigeria and Kenya last year, opening global eyes to the rapidly growing tech scene.
The event will feature over 30 speakers including Etisalat Nigeria, Safaricom Spark Fund, Orange, TechCrunch, IFC, RedCloud Technologies, EcoBank, VConnect, Draper Dark Flow, BitPesa, VC4Africa, Linklaters LLP, The Economist, Quartz Africa, TechCabal, Disrupt Africa, ABAN and other leading ventures will share insights on the mobile, fintech, consumer, media and investment opportunities across the continent.
