The Africa Tech Startup Forum is a Market Access and Acceleration Program that aims to prepare, train, expose, and connect tech startups to opportunities.

Collaboration with experts from Africa and around the world will result in an ecosystem that nurtures and supports technology ventures.

The Africa Tech Startup Forum is supported by the Korea Africa Economic Cooperation (KOAFEC) Trust Fund via the African Development Bank’s (AfDB) Innovation and Entrepreneurship Laboratory. It serves as a dynamic hub for innovation, collaboration, and growth in Africa’s burgeoning technology landscape.
