What is it about Africa's Digital Economy?

Boasting the youngest population globally, Africa is witnessing a surge in smartphone adoption and internet penetration, fostering a thriving tech ecosystem. McKinsey and Company predict that Africa’s Digital Economy will skyrocket to a staggering $712 billion by 2050, making it one of the most promising markets in the world.

What is it about Africa's Digital Economy?

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering is AfriLabs’ flagship event that provides a unique opportunity for tech hubs within the AfriLabs network and other stakeholders of the African technology and innovation ecosystem (such as corporates, development agencies, academia, and investors) to convene, network, learn and share knowledge.

“Rwanda is always open to welcome regional and global innovators, and more so to champion critical conversations that unlock forward-looking policies and opportunities for the start-up ecosystem. Our goal is to empower scalable startups that collectively transform our communities with cutting edge innovations.”

Hon. Paula Ingabire

Rwanda’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology (ICT)

“AfriLabs appreciates the people, government, and innovation community in Rwanda for the strides they have made in positioning themselves as one of the most progressive countries on the continent. We thank the Honorable Minister for putting her weight behind platforms like the AfriLabs Annual Gathering. We look forward to onboarding more partners as we approach the Gathering. To the entire African innovation ecosystem, see you in Kigali in October.”
