The SA Innovation Summit believes that entrepreneurship is the biggest opportunity in our lifetime, and the most important way that Africa can come to its full potential and develop and deliver products and services that stand out, are credible and are inspired from the continent. It is a David against Goliath story, and it is time to take Africa to the World! It will take courage, vision and ingenuity. The lion is waking up and Africa is rising.
We do this through:
Establishing Techtribes: We create an enabling environment for the Tech Entrepreneur by connecting cross cutting technologies, coders and enabling organisations through discussions, visualisation, education, research and events;
Promoting an inclusive and impactful Agenda: We aim to challenge and inspire conversations around the impact on our collective environments, both physical and social, and identifying how we can effect meaningful change.
Accelerating innovations from idea to scale: We bring the African entrepreneurial ecosystem (Funders, Founders, Accelerators, Corporates, and Policy makers and Academia) from across the world together to connect and accelerate ecosystem outcomes which can support the scaling and replication of innovations.
Overall, the summit will cover six areas of interest, namely fintech, edtech, big data and science, cities of the future, agritech and biotech.
