Tech4Africa annually features a world class line-up of international and African technologists, entrepreneurs and strategists. Our aim is to not only enable Africans to gain exposure to global thinking, but also form a catalyst for local innovation and entrepreneurship by bringing the best minds and key players within the local tech and start-up landscape together. 


Our themes for this year are Mobile, Social and Cloud, and through listening to great feedback from the 2010 event, our schedule has changed somewhat to focus on fewer talks with deeper content, and expanded to include a Trade Show, Ignite, and Innovation Award (a rough guide to the conference is included below, or visit  


Conference overview

> Keynotes Josh Spear and Herman Chinery are part of a line-up of African and international thought leaders from organisations like Amazon, HP, Johns Hopkins University, Mozilla, SwiftRiver, the African Institution of Technology, SimpleGeo, Motribe, Clearleft, Ultinet Systems and many more


> Tech4Africa  runs for two full days on the 27th & 28th October, at The Forum, in Bryanston, Johannesburg.


> The Trade Show runs through the duration of the conference, and is an ideal opportunity for African technology businesses to showcase their products and/or services in an environment of buyers, decision makers, journalists, tweeters, bloggers and potential recruits.


> Ignite is a startup competition, aimed at giving exposure to the hottest new startups, while introducing them to prospective investors, customers and the media.


> Presented to a single winner, the Innovation Award encourages innovation for solving uniquely African problems, whilst also encouraging global thinking.  The Award recognises that innovation can be entrepreneurial, as well as intrapreneurial, and so is open to anyone or any company.
