This Week in African Tech 🌍

Hello Cape Town 👋🏾 and our next event in 🇿🇦

Welcome to Tech Safari!

Your tour guide on African Tech 🧭

Hello to the 29 new folks who have joined the Safari since the last edition.

If you haven't subscribed, join 16,839 smart folks curious about Tech in Africa.

Hey hey from sunny(ish) Cape Town, South Africa 👋🏾 🇿🇦

It really is event season.

Last week we explored how Estonia built the ultimate startup country and what that could mean for African countries.

On Tuesday, we’re teaming up with our friends from Estonia and Kenya to talk about how to build a startup village. But in real life! Catch more details here.

No Tech Safari trip is complete without a mixer.

So, I’ll be hosting a Tech Safari Mixer for our fam in Cape Town on November 23rd.

Tech Safari Mixers are a great way to connect and kick back with others in the tech ecosystem. And they’re a ton of fun.

We have limited spots, so RSVP here.

And if you know anyone who should be here, share it with them:
