At the June 23 Africa Tech Summit London at the London Stock Exchange, twelve African startups have been chosen to present for funding.
In Nairobi, London, and Ghana, the Africa Tech Summit (ATS) conference series offers knowledge and networking opportunities with the African tech industry. In order to promote investment and growth in African tech, ATS London, the organization’s 15th live summit, brings together tech leaders, MNOs, banks, investors, entrepreneurs, governments, trade organisations, media, and leading companies.
The summit will bring together 300 business executives from all around Africa with foreign investors, corporations, and projects after its 2022 iteration was completely sold out. An Investment Showcase and one-on-one investor meetings are both included in this year’s Venture Track, which will further encourage investment and cooperation.
Five firms from Nigeria are among the twelve that have been chosen to participate in the Investment Showcase. They are the training platform Quantum Analytics, the fintech firm Pivo, the loan service Creditchek, the e-health business Famasi Africa, and the investment site Astravest.
Along with the Tanzanian transportation app Safiri App, the UK-based fintech Knabu, the Zambian microlending platform PremierCredit, the Egyptian mobile payments service Zeal, and the South African financing platform Profitshare Partners, two Kenyan businesses – digital banking platform Waya and product development service eBiashara – are also chosen.
“Tech funding has slowed dramatically this year across the African tech ecosystem, so we are delighted to connect and showcase these leading ventures to international investors through this year’s investment showcase at London Stock Exchange. We look forward to welcoming 300 delegates, to drive business and investment forward between Africa and Europe,” said Andrew Fassnidge, managing director of Africa Tech Summit.
