We are in an era where technology is an inevitable part of our daily lives. With increasing internet penetration in Africa, there is a glimmer of hope that Africa won’t be left out. It is rather germane that Africa doesn’t lag behind in the innovations of today and the trends of tomorrow. As a continent, there is a need to create technology for an intelligent — future.
This is why we created Techpoint Inspired, a platform to connect people to the transformative power of technology, especially as it affects our daily lives.
At Techpoint Inspired 2019, we will explore tech talent development, the impact of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Machine Learning, Gaming, Virtual Reality, Cloud Computing, Blockchain etc. and how they can solve our societal problems as a continent.
In 2018, we hosted more than 5000 tech enthusiasts at the second edition of Techpoint Inspired. The feedback we got from the event was amazing. This year, we are taking it to a whole new level; Techpoint Inspired will convene innovators, disruptors, creative thinkers, developers, etc. across Africa.
Also, beyond the keynotes, we would be having in-depth breakout sessions to further understand where we stand as to technology in Africa. You will have more opportunities for networking, learning, and discovery than ever before.
Join us on the 1st of June, 2019 as we engage in pragmatic sessions around creating technology for an intelligent future in Africa. Also, experience some of the coolest technology gadgets.
