Bullish on Africa

557 people attended
Bullish on Africa is a digital conference that will speak to the future of Africa's tech industry with optimism and strength and critical thinking about what it takes to get to a stronger industry from where we are today.

In the face of a global pandemic and widespread uncertainty, there is understandable caution among investors and operators globally. Despite this reasonable concern, some of the smartest investors and operators are going against the grain and looking for opportunities in Africa.

This digital conference will bring together experienced tech thinkers and doers from across the world including entrepreneurs and investors to share their experiences about what the continent should be building and how to build strong, sustainable and profitable companies in a moment of crisis.

Before participating, please fill out this form - it will take just 5 minutes and will help us continue to support the needs of the African tech ecosystem.
