European - African Business Panel

ICT Services Location Discovery Conference

July 16th 14:00 - 16:00 - online

International ICT Location Discovery Conference

The purpose of this conference is to support European and African IT specialist companies in their efforts to internationalise business and services delivery and take advantage of favourable conditions and access to markets.

We present location insights and local IT entrepreneurs and their organisations, and prove the capabilities of three emerging ICT services delivery locations in delivering competitive digital solutions and services for international markets.

Business Case – Software Development in Africa 

Ensure projects delivery – fast, secure and without investment

Leading global brands – Amazon, Apple, BMW, Deutsche Telekom, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Mercedes, Samsung, to name a few – discovered the opportunities of working with African ICT services companies or to operate IT development centres on the continent.

Africa has convenient time zones, a vast young pool of tech talent, good IT and office infrastructure, and governments running digitalization programs to foster innovation and entrepreneurship.

Today we see many European companies from Germany, Denmark, Poland, Ukraine, and others working with African IT services providers to take advantage of the available talent and the favourable business conditions.

Program (online)

The program provides insights into the ICT sectors of Egypt, Ghana and Rwanda and will introduce entrepreneurs and their companies.

With this event we promote the risk-free model of working with local IT services providers compared to an investment in an own local development office. This shall lower the hurdles of accessing the local talent and benefiting from the favourable conditions.
