The program takes place virtually and in-person, aiming to showcase the exceptional tech innovations emerging from Africa and provide them with the platform to thrive. Collaborating with experts from Africa and around the globe, will create an ecosystem that nurtures and boosts tech ventures.

One of the key objectives of the Forum is to seek out and highlight women-owned tech companies, with a goal to have at least 50% of the cohort be strong African women showing their incredible range of tech skills.
