Unleashing the Power of East Africa’s Tech Start-Up Ecosystem
About AHUB East
AHUB East explores the region’s flourishing tech start-up scene. East Africa is a region synonymous with entrepreneurial spirit – this special feature will explore why a thriving start-up ecosystem is so important, how giving these nascent business the tools and capital to thrive early on is so key, and the latest trends and challenges facing the sector.
In what was a year of burgeoning investment across the continent, capital inflows for African start-ups in 2021 topped $5 billion – more than the previous 3 years combined! We’ll explore why 2021 was such a bumper year for the sector, where this money is being spent in the region, and how countries outside the heritage hub of Kenya are vying for investment.
If you want to network with young entrepreneurs, investors, enterprise champions, and ecosystem accelerators, AHUB East is the place to be in 2022!
