About Summit

The Africa Entrepreneurship Accelerator Summit seeks to explore the vast possibilities of Africa’s Economic Development through Entrepreneurship and the diverse entrepreneurial ways young Africans can contribute to building a sustainably attractive continent.

Day in, Day out, the future of the African continent shines brighter. At the center of this radiance are the rapid growth in population and the young demographic that characterizes it.

The Summit offers a unique platform to inspire young Africans to take action & generate thought-provoking discussions on how to re-write the African story (through entrepreneurship) for the sake of posterity.

The Summit will bring virtually together cross-industrial entrepreneurs from various African countries, policymakers, business leaders, formal & informal workers, female founders, small business owners, startup founders, and students across various academic disciplines.

This Summit is powered by WestlionCo in partnership with other strategic sponsors.
