Dear Fellow Innovator and Ecosystem Partner,

My name is Anna Ekeledo, the Executive Director of AfriLabs. AfriLabs is about community, innovation and development. Every year AfriLabs as a community – innovation hubs and entrepreneurs – meets with other stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem such as; corporate organizations, development agencies, investors and policy makers.

For 3 exciting days we delve into trending tech and innovation topics, network and build partnerships, explore disruptive and sustainable ways to build and scale African technology driven businesses and tour exciting innovation spaces in the local city.

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering has been held in different regions across Africa; from Ghana in 2016, to Egypt in 2017.

This year, we will be partnering with Sahara Sparks to run a joint event focused on ‘Innovation in the Data Age’. It is no debate that innovation is the solution to Africa’s problems but this will not be effective without the provision of adequate data which is slowly becoming the lifeline running through different sectors and industries; connecting and uniting these formerly isolated sectors into one community of information, insight and opportunities.

I look forward to seeing you in Dar es Salaam!
