Kick-off event of the Digital Hub Africa

The Digital Hub Africa offers space for networking start-ups and companies from (East) Africa and the Karlsruhe Technology Region.

Do you have contacts with or interest in (East) Africa and are your start-up or company active in the areas of energy, mobility or digitalization? Then sharpen your focus on (East) Africa at the Digital Hub Africa and identify new opportunities and possibilities for cooperation. Here you can share experiences, discuss questions and gain new knowledge!

The Digital Hub Africa format consists of two modules. All events will take place online. At the September 30, 2021 At the start, a stakeholder dialogue will take place, which will focus on disseminating information and networking for start-ups and companies in the Karlsruhe Technology Region that are already cooperating with African countries or want to implement this in the future. In this event, the focus on existing networks in Africa will be sharpened and concrete project ideas will be discussed and developed together with the participants. The speaker James Shikwati, Kenyan economist and founder of the Interregional Economic Network (IREN), shows the opportunities and challenges of African markets and addresses possible connecting points and future markets.
