Techpoint Build 2020 is holding virtually in August

by | Jun 29, 2020

The biggest challenge of 2020 to date has been the novel COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, it is not surprising that many businesses have had to deal with their fair share of problems resulting from the pandemic.

For us at Techpoint Africa, a major change was the postponement of our flagship event, Techpoint Build, twice between April and June. But despite national lockdowns and government-enforced restrictions, businesses have continued to adapt to the current realities where COVID-19 is concerned.

It is in light of this that we announce that Techpoint Build 2020 will be held virtually between August 27 and 29, 2020.

As originally planned, Techpoint Build 2020 will be a 3-day event. The startup and technology conferences, as well as the panel sessions, will be held on the first two days. The third day is the awards ceremony, which will be live-streamed to viewers.

Both conferences will be designed to connect Africans to the transformative power of technology as it affects our lives and businesses in this new era.

Regrettably, other programmes such as Pitch Storm (startup competition), the hackathon, and investor tour previously outlined for Techpoint Build 2020 will not take place due to restrictions on physical activities.

We believe firmly, though, that, as part of Techpoint Africa’s 5th Anniversary celebrations, Techpoint Build 2020 could yet be the largest, most diverse, and impact-driven virtual gatherings of the brightest minds in Africa. This is why we have decided to make the event free for attendees.
