2019 has seen the third edition of the AfricArena Summit. AfricArena presents an opportunity to explore tomorrow’s trends today by meeting some of Africa’s most innovative start-ups and connecting with key people from Africa tech ecosystems.
At AfricArena, we strongly believe in the power of networking and the opportunities it can generate by gathering, inspiring, and connecting bright people that barely met in the different ecosystems.
Inspiration is key and AfricArena offers the visitors to enjoy keynotes and discussions from thought leaders of the tech ecosystem.
The AfricArena team scout every year the leading tech hubs of the continent through the AfricArena Tour and invite the most promising innovative companies to accelerate their growth by gaining exposure toward leading corporates and investors.
In 2019, more than 10 open innovations challenges have enabled nearly 100 companies to attend the final summit in Cape Town. We also partner with some of the greatest incubators and accelerators to enable the startups they support to enjoy the AfricArena experience.
To date, more than US$160 million have been raised by AfricArena's alumni.

In just a few years, AfricArena has become a key moment for African tech startups looking to accelerate their growth. The 2020 Summit will happen the 24th and 25th November in Cape Town.
In partnership with incubators, accelerators, investors and our alumni community, we are able to spot promising companies tacking some of the biggest challenges of the continent.
Taking part in AfricArena is free for the few selected startups and most of them manage to secure new partnerships, funding or business contracts through the meetings and exposure they receive during the Summit.
