On Thursday, May 23, 2024, the stage is set for the eighth edition of the Africa Tech Summit London, slated for June 7th at the prestigious London Stock Exchange (LSE). This highly anticipated event aims to foster investment, catalyze business growth, and forge connections between African and European stakeholders in the tech industry.

Backed by a consortium of esteemed partners including Amazon Web Services, IFC, Tether Data, and many others, the summit is expected to draw over 300 industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors. These diverse participants will converge to collaborate and drive the growth of Africa’s tech ecosystem.

The London Stock Exchange, renowned for its role as a premier listing venue for ambitious businesses worldwide, stands as a pivotal partner for African firms seeking access to international investor capital. Abi Ajayi, Head of Primary Markets for the Middle East and Africa at LSE, expressed the exchange’s commitment to supporting tech companies emerging from Africa, facilitating their access to capital with a spirit of partnership and collaboration.

Andrew Fassnidge, Managing Director of Africa Tech Summit, emphasized the significance of the London Stock Exchange in propelling the next wave of exits and IPOs for African tech ventures. As the African tech ecosystem matures, the LSE serves as a catalyst for growth, nurturing the next generation of ventures.

Despite a slight dip in investments year-over-year, the Africa Tech Summit London remains a vital platform for showcasing Africa’s promising ventures and unlocking untapped investment opportunities across the continent. Despite the challenges highlighted by Partech, the summit aims to rejuvenate investor interest and reignite funding momentum in the African tech sector.

Key highlights of the summit include a lineup of keynote speeches, fireside chats, panel discussions, breakout sessions, masterclasses, and exclusive networking opportunities. Additionally, dedicated deal rooms will facilitate connections between entrepreneurs and investors, paving the way for fruitful collaborations and investment opportunities.

As the countdown to June 7th begins, excitement mounts for yet another impactful gathering of industry leaders and innovators at the Africa Tech Summit London, poised to chart the course for the future of Africa’s tech landscape.
