Tracks at a Glance

It takes daring vision and fearless determination to build an exceptional company that breaks the boundaries of what is thought possible.

At the first Startup week in Africa, our speakers will share their experiences and inspire you to strive further. Over the course of five days, participants in Startup Week can choose the events they’d like to attend. Typically these events are held at various venues across a city. Speakers from the community, and outside it, are brought in to share their story to motivate and inspire the entrepreneurial community.
