Afrolynk 2019

Linking Africa to Europe and Making an Impact with Tech and Entrepreneurship

Now in its 4th year, Afrolynk‘s annual conference is the premier African startup platform in Germany.

Bringing together around 200 African entrepreneurs, European investors, established corporates, policy-makers, SMEs, academics and experts, this conference delivers an incomparable learning and networking experience.

Building on a vast network of partners, Afrolynk connects startups and businesses focusing on Africa and/or wanting to expand into African markets and gives opportunities to entrepreneurs, hubs, policymakers, and investors within the African/European tech ecosystems to connect and help startups and businesses to accelerate in that space.

The Afrolynk Conference is part of a full week dedicated to capacity building, exploration of partnerships and networking. Before the conference takes place, Afrolynk hosts workshops for previously selected African entrepreneurs and organizes an ecosystem tour for these entrepreneurs. Additionally, high-level representatives from within the startup-, policy– and corporate ecosystem will be invited to a private dinner ceremony prior to the main conference.
