Ericsson AHUB coming to AfricaCom conference

Aimed at bringing together entrepreneurs, tech startups, and investors, Ericsson AHUB at AfricaCom will be taking place from 17-19 November at the CTICC in Cape Town. The event will be showing off the tech startup sector and its skills, which is in need of more funding and guidance from industry experts.

The three-day conference programme will feature discussions, debates, and presentations all hosted by some of Africa’s leading tech entrepreneurs and startups. The Ericsson AHUB sessions will be free of charge to startups and small businesses operating in the sector.

Julie Rey-Gore, AfricaCom’s Research Director, says the event is a chance for investors to network with incubators, accelerators, and tech innovation hubs. “The Ericsson AHUB will host Africa’s top seasoned and starting out, tech entrepreneurs. It is the perfect opportunity for investors interested in this exciting space to meet and connect with the future of the industry,” she adds.

By using a pre-event networking tool, investors will be able to identify companies they are interested in and make use of the speed networking sessions after the show.

“Another aim of the Ericsson AHUB is to foster new relationships between various incubator hubs allowing the sharing of best practice, membership recruitment and funding models,” adds Rey-Gore.

AfricaCom 2015 is a community-driven event developed by Informa, which has worked in partnership with the likes of mLab, Silicon Cape, Disrupt Africa, and a range of other partners.
