The 2022 edition will host three tracks - the Money and DeFi Summit, Africa Start-up Summit and the Africa Mobile Summit.

As funding into African tech start-ups rapidly grew to US$4.27-billion in 2021 the Africa Startup Summit continues to showcase the rapidly moving start-up ecosystem, unpacking key trends and insights for 2022 with leading investors, corporates and start-ups showcasing investment opportunities.

Organisers have released a statement and add that the Africa Mobile Summit, supported by Gebeya, will deliver a cross-sectional view of new technologies, solutions, and growth opportunities across the vast mobile and digital landscape.

“With keynotes, panels and breakout sessions from tech giants, MNO’s, OEM’s, regulators, mobile industry leaders, innovators and corporates join the Africa Mobile Summit to hear inspiring and revolutionary insights on the future of the mobile with a focus on MarTech, Gaming, Content, Connectivity, Cyber-security, HealthTech, Agtech and Apps,” reads part of the statement.
