In this age of technology, anything can go viral. #SAIS2022 will explore how the positive impact of great innovations can be multiplied, scaled, and go viral.

Just like THE VIRUS, how do we adapt, spread and impact the market?

  • Ecosystems that support the impact of great new ideas
  • Toolkits for founders to reach continental and international markets
  • Secrets to Make a Unicorn (1-billion-dollar companies) in Africa
  • Trends in growth rate, impact, and deal stacks for investors, founders, and supporters

We spread the good news virus of innovation on the continent by celebrating success, showcasing start-up talent, matching talent with finance and knowledge, and creating toolkits and networks at the 2022 SA Innovation Summit.

SAIS will provide you with countless opportunities pre-, during, and post-event, to share brilliant ideas, showcase your solutions and products and develop relationships with the people on the event floor, online, and through our vast networking opportunities.
