AfriLabs Annual Gathering 2020

Virtual edition


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the health and safeguarding of our community, the 5th AfriLabs Annual Gathering will take place virtually from the 12th to 14th October 2020.

 The AfriLabs Annual Gathering provides a unique opportunity for tech hubs in the AfriLabs network and other stakeholders in the African tech ecosystem like local innovators (entrepreneurs), corporates, investors, academia and developmental agencies to convene, network and share knowledge.

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering has historically been held at different cities around the African continent in collaboration with national and local governments, the private sector and our member hubs. While the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible for us to meet face to face, it now presents a powerful opportunity to be even more inclusive in participation.

Building a Resilient Innovative Africa

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected every sector of the continent’s economy and we must look inwards and collaborate to build a resistance that charges towards a glooming economic prediction to birth a thriving innovative economy in Africa. So it’s perfect that resilience is the overarching theme of this year’s conference as we convene to discuss “ Building a Resilient Innovative Africa”.

Now more than ever, building a resilient and innovative Africa through an integrated approach by engaged Africans who speak with one voice on innovation targeted at the actualization of the SDGs and Africa’s Agenda 2063 is paramount.

Designing an Inclusive Event to Explore Africa’s Innate Ability to Build

We are focused on designing an inclusive, exciting event for our hub managers, partners, sponsors and all curious innovators from Africa and across the globe who want to be part of this conversation in one way or another. In our normal AfriLabs Annual Gathering tradition we will have three days of programming exploring the building of communities, the importance of partnerships and Africa’s innate ability to build. We’d be delighted to hear from potential speakers. Please get in touch by sending an email to
