The Marrakech Global Innovation Summit

GITEX Africa 2024 is set to be a game-changer in the African tech industry, taking place from May 29th to 31st. The event builds on the success of its inaugural conference and exhibition last year, attracting over 35,000 attendees and 900 exhibitors from around the world. This year’s focus on sectors like cloud and IoT, cybersecurity, digital health, future finances, consumer technology, telecoms, and AI will provide European startups with an exceptional opportunity to network with professionals, meet potential investors, learn from industry experts and connect with emerging talent.

Africa’s tech startups continue to thrive despite global economic challenges. In 2022, African tech startups raised $6.5 billion in funding, representing an impressive 8% increase compared to the previous year. London venture capitalist Breega has stated that the African tech ecosystem is comparable to Europe in the early 2010s. This growth has attracted international investors who are looking for promising GDP growth forecasts in Africa.

The North Star Africa startup showcase at GITEX Africa 2024 will feature some of the most innovative entrepreneurs and founders from across the continent. The event will host speakers such as Raz Bachar from Microsoft for Startups, Maelis Carraro from Catalyst Fund, Tosin Eniolorunda from Moniepoint and Romanna Dada from PwC. Moroccan startups like Maroc Data Centre, Zen Networks, Dataprotect and Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) will also be present at this year’s event to showcase their advancements in technology and innovation.

GITEX Africa 2024 promises a thrilling three days of networking opportunities that will enable participants to explore new trends in technology and connect with other players in the industry.
