Who WE ARE
AfricArena is an African tech accelerator that runs Corporate Open Innovation challenges throughout the African continent.
Going into its fifth year, AfricArena has the privilege of operating in three key spheres that underpin Africa’s economic landscape. These being: tech startups, corporations, and investors (i.e. angel investors, VCs, CVCs and other institutional investors).
Through open innovation challenges, in partnership with corporations, we aim to bring together these 3 spheres, to foster co-investment and collaboration that can move the economies and people of the continent forward.
This year, AfricArena organized 4 hybrid events across 4 regions in Africa (North, South, East and West African regions), which acted as semi-final pitch sessions building up to the annual AfricArena Grand Summit in Cape Town from the 16th - 17th November 2021.
The Grand Summit will bring together ±50 startups, local and international investors, corporations and other key ecosystem players operating in the different regions in Africa.
We hope to see you there!
