Techmoney Africa Summit – Where Tech, Money & Innovation Meet

Dare we re-imagine a powered up, technologically advanced Africa? A society with reliable electricity supply, stable telecommunications infrastructure, fast and efficient transportation – this could transform Africa and the lives of its 1.3 billion citizens. We are ready to write our own story, change the script, introduce new players and take centre stage.

Africa has benefited from unprecedented capital inflows into technology, with Nigeria as the premier destination for tech investment.
