MONEY LINE Africa New Technology Summit, Kigali 2019

OVERVIEW
Beyond a doubt, the impressive technological achievements of the Third and Fourth Industrial Revolutions and the digitalization of the world as we have known it, have led us to a fascinating Innovation age, inclusive of new challenges as well as threats.
Government, business, academia and people as a whole have benefited from the rapid evolution of technology. Remote access to numerous services, instant communication, automation of procedures, information proceeding and storage are but a few of the many aspects that lead to economic growth and the improvement of quality of life for populations around the world.

We do; however, Africa still lives in an era of Technology deficit. The increasing opportunities come along with various challenges: vulnerable systems, data safety and protection, cybercrime and hackers. Governments and business need a coherent strategy to provide a secure business environment and use this transformation for the benefit of society.
MONEY LINE NETWORK are proud to announce the organisation of a special event at the Kigali Marriot Hotel Kigali Rwanda, on November 18th – 19th 2019, entitled “Taking Technology to the Next Level: A glance into the Africa’s invention gestation”.
New Technology summit is a pinnacle for leaders from African driven companies, the top emerging entrepreneurs of the tech world, and the most important investors who finance them. The event will be aired live by our media partners African Independent Television (AIT) Nigerian Television Authority and other TV stations. Not forgetting the active social media activities including live streaming to over 10,000 followers
For big companies, entrepreneurs, and investors alike, it’s essential to stay ahead of fast-breaking trends: becoming part of the New Technology community can make the difference between finding a competitive edge or being disrupted into oblivion. Becoming part of the community by registering for the annual meeting gives executives access to a number of benefits that deliver value throughout the year. The 2019 Africa New Technology Summit will convene the world’s preeminent leaders in the space to showcase cutting-edge developments and build solutions to one of the world’s most pressing concerns.
