THE EVENT

CTO Council in partnership with Foreign Investment Network (FIN) will be hosting a 3-day in-person and virtual (Hybrid) event with two main focus: founders and investors will be seen shaping the future of disruptive technology, and ideas and startup experts will have the privilege to provide insights to entrepreneurs. Hundreds of startups in diverse categories will get the chance to tell their stories to 10,000+ influencers from all over the world. It’s the much anticipated experience in Silicon Valley, where the leaders of the startup world come together to ask questions, share ideas, make connections, and be inspired.

OUR AIM

This event aims to delve into the ecommerce world; discovering the trends that will dominate the Ecommerce landscape in 2021, some of which are, but not limited to e-payment, customer experience and relationships, ultra-personalization, omnichannel approach, AR/VR, machine learning & AI, chatbots, conversational commerce, unified commerce, market places, social commerce, paying methods, shoppable TV, ReCommerce, sustainability, and many more.

The entire ecommerce world is coming together to share exclusive knowledge, tactics and actionable strategies on how to build, operate, and scale profitable ecommerce businesses in 2021. We’ll have top level speakers and industry leaders, including top brands, agencies, service providers, and technology companies from different parts of the world, sharing in-depth knowledge, best-practices, real (client) cases, and success stories. As a part of this unique experience, you stand to be nothing but inspired. 

 More so, Africa has nearly 420 million youth aged 15-35, with one-third who are unemployed, another third who are vulnerably employed, and only one in six is in wage employment. One of our major aim is to harness the increase in the working age population in order to support increased productivity and stronger, more inclusive economic growth across the continent. We would like to stand for Africa in this by aligning employees talents to organisational capabilities, and putting to good use, the potential of 300 million employees in Africa.
