About AHUB East

AHUB East 2020 will shine a light on the key topics and players in the East African ecosystem, including  why the fintech sector is receiving increasing investor interest; the role ag-tech start-ups are playing in disrupting this vital sector; understanding why Nairobi is such an attractive hub for tech and how other cities in the region can learn from it; and the next big thing in disruptive technology start-ups.

Nairobi remains the only Tier 1 tech city in the region with almost 50 hubs in 2019. Kampala and Dar Es Salaam are both home to 10+ hubs while Kigali and Addis Ababa look to add to their handful of tech hubs in 2020.
