Organized under the theme “accelerating the start-up of emerging markets”, the first day’s discussions will focus on “Start-up Ecosystem Drivers” with an in-depth look at the contributions of venture capital fund managers, business angels, accelerators, and journalists in technology innovation centers around the world.
The discussions of the second day will focus on an analysis of exponential technologies in the transformation of future industries via Ai, virtual reality, drone, robotics, space, etc.
Stakeholders from around the world and leading technology companies like Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, Twitter, IBM, Microsoft, will be there. More than 40 representatives from Forbes Magazine, Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, Black Enterprise, NY Times and many more will take part.
Hosting the event in Ghana is not only aimed at revitalizing economic activity in the country, but also at providing a new narrative for Ghana and emerging markets. “Ghana, the gateway to Africa, can redefine how we take advantage of exponential opportunities across the continent …,” said event organizer Einstein Ntim.
Remember that Ghana Tech Summit is the largest gathering of hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, digital marketers and influencers who use technology to address technology challenges and entrepreneurship.
