Kigali Africa

(GSMA, 2018)

As tech and entrepreneurship gathers speed across the region, a new age is fast emerging in Africa – the age of the digital citizen. From the rise in e-commerce; drone delivered hospital supplies; connected livestock; mobile voting; robotic surgery and mobile banking – Africa is witnessing an unprecedented technological evolution thanks to mobile. New technologies such as AI, blockchain, and even 5G offer new opportunities to empower societies and a growing tech savvy youth to bring Africa on par with the rest of the world as an information society.

As the largest GSMA event held in Africa, Mobile 360 – Africa convenes leaders from Africa’s tech and telecom landscape to share disruptive, provocative, and inspirational ideas contributing to Africa’s digital rise. The conference discussions ask what policies can promote digital engagement and highlight innovations bringing real change socially and economically. In addition, attendees enjoy start-up pitches, an Innovation Showcase, networking initiatives, GSMA Mobile for Development sessions, and more.

Mobile Money Leadership Forum on day three discusses embracing payments as a platform which takes a deep-dive into the world of digital financial services in emerging markets.

Join us at Mobile 360 – Africa in Kigali, Rwanda on 16-18 July 2019. Register at www.mobile360series.com/africa.
