SEC2A, a European Commission initiative, aims to connect Africa and Europe – through digital trade and not aid – by bringing together heads of state, entrepreneurs, business leaders and celebrities from both continents. The SEC2A Road Show will tour Cape Town and Lagos, before culminating in Abidjan to coincide with the 5th Africa-EU Summit.
With Wayra UK (a Telefónica company), Google, Orange, Facebook, Amazon, and others behind it, as well as senior African sponsorship in President Obasanjo, this is your chance to pitch your start-up to senior leaders, investors, corporate executives and others across the European and African technology scene.
Open to start-ups across all of the EU and Africa, SEC2A will truly be a celebration of the best entrepreneurial talent that our diverse continents have to offer and a powerful opportunity to gain exposure at the highest levels. Every long journey requires a first step, and this launch event is where it all begins!
