The AfricArena Grand Summit is the main event in which our regional events during the year build up to.

This year, AfricArena is running 4 hybrid regional summits, dedicated to North Africa, West Africa, East Africa and Southern African ecosystems. These are acting as semi-final selection events where ±25 startups are being selected to pitch at the Grand Summit in Cape Town in November 2021.
