Leading Africa towards an even brighter future


The Africa Tech Festival 2023 LeadersIn Africa Summit is an exclusive, invite-only leadership event for the continent's most senior and influential tech leaders. 

Run under Chatham House Rules to foster frank, actionable dialogue between Africa's tech senior leaders, this interactive, curated content feature explores the critical, sector-shaping issues pertinent to Africa’s digital development journey. 


As the world becomes increasingly digital 'Tech for Good' businesses will play a fundamental role in shaping the way we live, learn, play and do business – through enhanced productivity, efficiency and, importantly, in addressing the most intractable issues facing our society and environment. 

The LeadersIn Africa Summit 2023 exists to unite and inspire the most innovative thinkers to use technology to transform business, society and champion positive socioeconomic change. 

The Summit is designed to be highly interactive with an insightful scene-setting panel discussion, curated roundtable sessions, and a special focus on impactful networking to facilitate meaningful connection through shared knowledge and experience. 

In 2023 we'll cover the topics most critical to success in Africa's tech renaissance - talent & skills, gender inclusion, meaningful connectivity, energy & connectivity, SME & start-up enablement, and more - with a keen focus on sustainability and inclusivity.
