ABAWT x #Africa4Future Meetup
A Better Africa with Tech (ABAWT) and #Africa4Future have teamed up to bring you access to 10 awesome startups from 7 different countries across the African continent!
The #Africa4Future initiative is a joint accelerator by Airbus BizLab & GIZ Make-IT in Africa focusing on startups working on digital solutions in the field of unmanned logistics and remote sensing. Ten teams from Kenya, Malawi, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Mali and South Africa were selected from more than 300 applicants from all over the continent to participate in the six month program. The startups will be with us in Berlin for the ABAWT x #Africa4Future Meetup to talk about their solutions in the sectors of health, infrastructure, logistics, agriculture, water and waste management.
The event will give you the opportunity to get directly in touch with the young innovators and learn more about their innovations for a better Africa with tech.
