Equipping the next generation of business and technology leaders to shape Africa's digital future
ASTARS is an interactive event specifically designed for future leaders – currently under the age of 30 – in the African telecoms, media, and tech sectors
Why attend or nominate a younger colleague?
Future leaders in digital Africa need to develop a unqiue skill set. Digital transformation and convergence between the telecoms, media and tech sectors is creating an uncertain and ever-shifting business landscape. ASTARS will equip the next generation of leaders to be more decisive, innovative, entrepreneurial, and to embrace new opportunities in the whirlwind of digital disruption sweeping though the continent.
