INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF TECH ENTREPRENEURS
The Africa Tech day is an event where brilliant minds will come together to form potential solutions to the challenges facing the continent. This year, the focus is on Fintech!
The event will be a 2-day Fintech Hackathon where attendees will form teams and collaborate with coaches to create solutions to the challenges which will be announced at least one month to the the day.
Each team will get a chance to be coached by industry leaders and will be paired with tech hubs from across Africa. Exciting prizes are up for grabs for the winning team, as well as great networking opportunities during the evening pitch.
