AfricaTech in 2021
AfricaTech, to promote both initiatives, is partnering with AfricArena, AG Partners, The Presidential Council for Africa, the International Trade Center, Seedstars Africa Ventures and the Sommet Afrique France.
AfricaTech is about highlighting African innovation, and about showcasing specific initiatives from this booming tech ecosystem. Startups in the rest of the world can certainly draw inspiration from the way emerging African companies have leveraged frugal innovation and leapfrogging. AfricaTech is also about awards for African startups, and it's a way to highlight outstanding European initiatives for Africa. In 2019, VivaTech welcomed more than 1000 startups from Africa.
