We think that the best tech ecosystems in the world have regular events which bring together people in tech to learn, meet new people and have lots of fun.
We don’t like suits and ties, there are no plenaries, committees and chairpeople. We focus on great content and value for all who attend, free wifi, coffee all day, fun at night, and an electric atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else.
This is not a lowest common denominator event. This is an assertive event. We don’t care if the fishbowl doesn’t like it. We do not merely aspire to the heady heights of conformity through neutrality, blandness and crass marketing. You probably don’t even care that this rebellious pan-African event contains no agenda or bullshit and looks only for the finest content we can find. Just go back to schmoozing at your mass marketed, bland, cheaply run watered down “sales networking functions”, and close the browser behind you. Tech4Africa is about breaking rules, upsetting trends and unsettling institutions but first and foremost above all, great content. The kind of content people talk about.
We’re one of the only (if not the only) events in Africa who won’t put on sales pitch content. Everything you see will be authentic content from authentic speakers, talking from their own experience.
Take time for your yearly dose of tech inspiration, by joining a tribe of people who value talking straight, growing and building.
The magic happens in the hallways, at lunch, between sessions, and during beers. That’s when the best connections are made, and we actively focus on that.
First and foremost, because you won’t find this kind of content and speakers anywhere else. Our sessions are honest, open, and about real experiences. We don’t do sales pitches, and we don’t push agendas!
Our simple goal is that you walk away both informed, entertained and inspired. Placing greatest emphasis on learning, interaction, engagement and discussion, we want Tech4Africa to be a place for new ideas and to encourage people to make and change things.
This isn’t a FREE day out of the office, this is the day where you meet new, interesting people, where you make new friendships, and renew old bonds. And that is the best kind of networking 😉
Learn from speakers who have already been there, and trod the hard road of personal experience. You can read as many blogs as you like, but hearing it in person is way more valuable.
