Africa is Rising Through Tech

Africa Rising. This was the golden thread woven throughout the third annual AfricArena Summit which recently took place in Cape Town. Here, issues affecting the African tech ecosystem were unpacked by speakers comprised of some of the most interesting thought leaders, founders, investors and corporate changemakers of our time.

Opening the event, Silicon Cape Director, Zimkhita Buwa, said: “Africa is synonymous with opportunity. Yes, we have incredible challenges, but we are not waiting on the side-lines for the world to provide us with solutions, we are creating our own solutions using our own technology.”
