Event Details

In a world where many startups are working on high impact, daring ideas can be overlooked. But that doesn’t mean revolutionary startups are not out there.

Network with startup founders/change makers from across Africa and attend the afternoon sessions of day 2 by joining us at Africa Tech Summit HQ – Kigali.

Abacus enables both local and global investors to invest in Kenyan stocks, government bonds and unit trusts under one investment account. The company intends to provide access to Africa’s major markets under one account in the next 3 years.
Joel is a Forbes Top 30 Under 30 and Business Daily Top 40 Under 40 entrepreneur.
