Tech4Africa has just announced that it will be running its first ever Cape Town event on 28 August. The popular South African annual tech conference has been running for the last five years in Johannesburg, and this year decided to include the Mother City in the mix.
Tech4Africa focuses on deep technical workshops and sessions for practitioners, and then engaging talks which impart knowledge, perspective, African context and inspiration.
The unapologetic vision for Tech4Africa is that the best tech ecosystems in the world have regular events that bring together everyone in tech to learn, meet new people and have lots of fun. There will be lots of coffee, new ideas, and networking involved.
“We were skeptical of bringing Tech4Africa to Cape Town, but after watching the clear growth of the industry in the Cape, we felt that in keeping with our own Lean / MVP approach to Tech4Africa we would kick off a Cape Town event this year,” says Gareth Knight, Founder of Tech4Africa. “There are so many great new things coming out of the Cape, it’s going to be great to hear the stories that emerge…”
There will also be an IBM SmartCamp [https://www-304.ibm.com/partnerworld/wps/servlet/ContentHandler/isv_com_smp_startup] running on the same day, and startups are strongly encouraged to attend in order to benefit from the mentoring on offer.
