Women in Tech Africa 2019: In Pictures

April 5, 2019 | Georgina Varley

In March, we welcomed over 700 attendees to Cape Town for Women in Tech Africa. Let's take a look back at the highlights in photos.

Thank you for joining us at Women in Tech Africa for two days of inspirational content. 

The African continent is one of the highest growth geographies in the world. It boasts a booming tech sector, a viable market, rich with entrepreneurship and innovation. Tech is shaping the future of Africa, enabling the continent to make a huge impact globally. We are proud to have hosted our first African Women in Tech World Series event in Cape Town, South Africa and look forward to returning.
