Our first ‘Africa China Tech for Social Impact’ (ACT SI) event series kicked off on Thursday 22nd November at Innoway, an incubator located in China’s hub for tech innovation: Zhongguancun. The event gathered over 80 passionate entrepreneurs and professionals keen to learn about Africa’s tech scene and opportunities for partnership.

Co-held by Kente & Silk and Startup Grind, ACT SI featured two guest speakers: Lina Ayenew (founder of Education for Ethiopia – a social enterprise leveraging technology to increase access to education) and Hannah Ryder (CEO of Development Reimagined a think-tank and consultancy hybrid that aims to use innovation to tackle development challenges). Both speakers shared their insights on how Africa, the continent with the youngest population, is producing tech innovations and trends to look out for.

The inaugural ACT SI event provided a platform for attendees to explore the opportunities that exist in technological collaborations between Africa & China and to network with potential partners.
