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.


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.
