Enhancing Tech-Parity Across Africa

On the 5th and 6th of May, Topco Media and partners will be presenting a robust networking experience aimed at kick-starting economic growth in Africa, using technology. Africa Tech Week is alive with gleaming opportunities to shape fruitful connections, forge clearer paths to digital transformation and inspire collective and personal growth.


Enjoy the Inside Scoop from Top-Tech Companies

Registered attendees gain access to the two-day hybrid conference where they can enjoy the inside scoop from top-tech companies. Listen eagerly as renowned leaders including Dr Marian Croak, Vice President of Engineering for Google USA; Abe Smith, International Lead for Zoom USA and Ayodele Odusola, United Nations Representative for South Africa, unveil their winning formulas and “techs of the trade.”


Redefining a “New Normal”

Redefining a novel kind of normal in 2021 directly correlates with the future of IT and stimulating market growth through digitisation. Questions such as, why and how to invest in technology and Africa will be at the forefront of our quest for knowledge. Looking ahead at the “new normal,” and what it means for start-ups and fintechs during and post the pandemic, will be key topics. Immerse yourself in pertinent matters, including women in tech, CX, artificial intelligence and technology governance, as we embark on a two-day summit.


Partnerships and Recognition

Topco Media has partnered with outstanding companies such as Vaxowave, PPC, Gijima and Silicon Cape – just to name a few. Dr Sumarie Roodt, Silicon Cape Co-Chairperson says, “Africa is quickly emerging as one of the most important catalysts for technology, innovation and entrepreneurship – but success in these fields, and the growth potential of the continent, depends on investment, education and collaboration. This is what makes us excited to be supporting Africa Tech Week – an event teeming with possibility for players in the ecosystem.”

Africa Tech Week is also dedicated to the recognition and reward of the companies in Africa that have excelled at innovative product development. Looking at Africa, the continent bustling with the most youthful population on earth a decade from now, the splendid opportunity to build a thriving community is tangible. With a rich bounty of natural resources, sustainable development in Africa is imperative and achievable. The future is intelligent, and it begins with a platform, like the 2021 Africa Tech Week to catapult her people to the new and exciting frontier.


Bridging the Gap
