Sentech Africa Tech Week will be held in Cape Town from May 2-5, 2023 and will feature more than 300 leaders from various sectors, including business, government, academia, and civil society.
The four-day event focuses on how Africa can shape its future in the era of digital transformation.
Participants will share their insights and experiences on how to leverage technology for social and economic development, and there will be live demonstrations of cutting-edge solutions and platforms transforming Africa’s industries and communities.
The conference aims to connect growing companies to the learnings they need for improved innovation, attracting entrepreneurs who want to revolutionize their sectors.
South Africa’s Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies, Mondli Gungubele, will share the government’s thoughts on policymaking, and Billionaire Dr Patrick Soon-Shiong will set the tone for a conference that examines the full spectrum of tech involvement on the African continent.
Panel discussions and other keynotes will focus on topics like a continental collaboration between African tech incubators and innovators, regulation keeping pace with innovation, and how gaming is driving the continent’s digital economy.
The future of Africa depends on how well it can connect and empower its people with digital services.
Sentech, the event’s headline sponsor, is dedicated to building the infrastructure and access that will make this possible.
The public sector’s role in the digital economy will also be addressed, with Mactar Seck from the United Nation Economic Commission for Africa and Joseph Ndaba from the Presidential Commission on the Fourth Industrial Commission unpacking what continental collaboration towards socio-economic solutions looks like in 2023.
Day two discussions will focus on the future of artificial intelligence and how the continent is contributing to shaping that future.
Each day of Sentech Africa Tech Week 2023 offers a full buffet of exploration and discussions to satisfy Africa’s hunger for innovation.
Moderating last year’s event, science and tech journalist and broadcaster, Bobby Brown found every moment to be pure satisfaction and crammed with insightful information.
“The networking opportunities are on a level of its own, as you get to meet people who are working on things you didn’t even know were being done locally,” he said.
The full programme can be accessed on the event website, along with all the ticketing information to discuss, collaborate and play your part in Africa’s tech revolution.
