The annual Africa Innovate Conference is a unique and intimate forum that brings together leading entrepreneurs and change-agents from across the African continent. The conference attracts over 350 business leaders, entrepreneurs, influencers, students, professors, and alumni, all with strong interests in Africa.
Over the years, we have welcomed illustrious speakers such as her Excellency President Ameenah Gurib-Fakim of Mauritius; Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, ex-Minister of Finance of Nigeria; Mostafa Terrab, CEO of OCP; Sara Menker, Founder and CEO of Gro Intelligence; Donald Kaberuka, ex-CEO of the African Development Bank; and Ismail Ahmed, Founder and CEO of WorldRemit.
The theme for this year is “Made In Africa”
Through a series of panels, workshops, and keynote addresses, we aim to celebrate endeavors, innovations, and breakthroughs with an impact on the continent and beyond. As one of the largest Africa-centric conferences held outside of Africa, our event will focus on unpacking the best practices and strategies required to accelerate the scaling of impactful enterprises and innovations on the continent across sectors. The conference will also include an Innovation Expo & Networking Reception.
