Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST), a Ghana-based business incubator and accelerator, has announced its annual Africa Technology Summit will hold in Lagos, Nigeria this December.
The Africa Technology Summit 2016 will bring together the crème de la crème of all parts of the African technology ecosystem including telcos, banks, multinationals, VCs, financial services and entrepreneurs.
They will all be explaining their Africa strategies during the event, and sharing what’s next for them on the continent.
Discussions at the event will focus on AgriTech, Fintech, infrastructure needs, corporate venture capitalism and several others. Speakers will include Mitchell Elegbe of Interswitch and Main One’s CEO, Funke Opeke and reps from Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Vodacom and MTN.
This year’s event will see the introduction of a private Demo Day, where MEST’s top portfolio companies will pitch to potential investors and partners.
The event will hold on December 6 – 7, 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotels Lagos, Nigeria. Tickets are available here.
The inaugural edition of the event held in Accra, Ghana last year, bringing together about 160 attendees from Africa, Europe and Silicon Valley, and was filled with lively discussions and debates.
