Since 2017, Techpoint Africa has hosted tech enthusiasts, innovators, disruptors, developers of tech companies across Africa and the world at Techpoint Inspired Conference in Lagos, Nigeria.
There have been superb proactive conversations around the future of technology in Africa and how technology can disrupt processes on the continent and usher in the 4th industrial revolution.
For the third year in a row, Techpoint Africa will be hosting Techpoint Inspired; West Africa’s largest tech conference.
Even though this year’s edition promises to be power packed and an insightful life-changing experience, it is not business as usual.
Technology is changing Africa, and the whole world really fast, maybe faster than we can keep up with.
With these changes, a lot of things are rendered obsolete including work, jobs and careers. And most people are unsure of, or not aware of how to navigate these changes.
On the 1st of June 2019, experts and enthusiasts from Africa and around the world will gather at Techpoint Inspired to discuss how to be properly positioned to take advantage of these technological changes.
Keynotes and workshops will be centred around the Future of Work, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cryptocurrency, blockchain and more new technologies. And most importantly,what they all mean for you.
Even though every part promises to be insightful, the workshops at Techpoint Inspired 2019 are some of the most important parts of this year’s conference. And they are also what is different about this year’s edition.
This year, after the keynotes, attendees will be divided into 3 preselected workshops on either;
- The Future of Work,
- AI, Robotics, and Machine Learning, or
- The Future of Work.
In these workshops, there will be presentations, panels, debates, fireside chats, and question and answer sessions that will involve experts from around the world.

- Funke Opeke, CEO, MainOne.
- Wale Akanbi, Co-founder / CTO, Aella Credit.
