APO Group and the Africa Tech Now today, 25 October 2017, announced the signing of a strategic partnership aimed at giving large-scale visibility to the rising stars of African tech and delegations participating in Consumers Electronic Show – CES 2018 from 9 to 12 January 2018.
For the first time, the African tech world will take centre stage at the four-day event courtesy of Africa Tech Now.
Throughout the event, local techies will be given the opportunity to present their Africa-oriented products and services to a global audience and showcase their creative ideas aimed at fuelling development and growth.
“There are more than 300 innovation and tech hotspots in Africa and a huge reservoir of tech-savvy talents but the lack of market awareness limits their ability to take off. When we thought up Africa Tech Now, we wanted to create a unique environment conducive to the promotion of local champions and exchanges to facilitate business development” said Christian Pineau, International Boost Chief Executive Officer.
“We are excited to be collaborating with APO Group. With their advanced service portfolio and technologies tailored for Africa, they are the ideal partner to help us raise the profiles of Africa Tech Now participants and support them in earning the recognition they deserve” states Pineau.
“Although 77 African start-ups raised an impressive $366.8 million in investment last year, there is still a plethora of future Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg looking for financial support to see their dream come true. It gives us pride to be part of the Africa Tech Now initiative; to actively contribute to propelling young driven entrepreneurs to stardom. With International Boost, we share the same vision of bringing to the fore Africa’s Innovation Revolution. As the media relations expert in Africa, it is our duty to convey the information and allow African delegations to increase their presence on the international stage,” says Nicolas Pompigne-Mognard, APO Group Founder and CEO.
