The coveted East Africa Com Awards celebrate the pioneering individuals and companies in the region. East Africa Com is part of the Connecting Africa series with AfricaCom, the continent's largest tech event.

Participants include telecommunications operators, leading technology platforms, hardware vendors, connectivity providers, startups, philanthropists and technology companies driving progress.
