Africa Innovate is an intimate showcase of the latest ideas and innovations in entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare, energy and education. In addition to our panels, our esteemed Keynotes reflect on how they have made their contribution to the continents development. Our Vision Talks allow select guests to share ideas they want you to be a part of developing. Finally, our 2014 Business Plan Competition and Hackathon give young upstarts the opportunity to present their ideas to movers and shakers and walk away with funds to take their vision for Africa to the next level.
