I recently wrote about the Tech4Africa Conference, which actually turned out to be amazing. More awesome than the conference itself were the organizers, who gave me an all-access blogger pass. Emerging Media and the Tech4Africa team are rockstars.
We interviewed some of the speakers, delegates and Seedcamp participants.
The Tech4Africa Special
In this NetwebTV special, we spoke to:
- Gareth Knight, the founder of Tech4Africa, about how it was received and whether the change he foresaw ago when we spoke was achieved.
- Gareth Ochse – the founder of iSigned and one of the competitors in Seedcamp Africa. I heard they are also one of the companies who qualified to attend Seedcamp Week in London
Speakers and delegates
We also caught up with some of the speakers and delegates who gave us their views on development in Africa as a whole.
Mark Kaigwa, a Creative Director and Entrepreneur shares his views about the conference and what it means for Africa. Kenya is 4 to 5 countries away from where conference was, so Mark came a long way.
Clay Shirky was the keynote speaker at the conference and he also took a moment to speak to us. In a nutshell – Clay is a professor, speaker, thought leader and an icon in all things economics, community and open source. He is the author of 2 books and shares his expert views on how social phenomena were started small and grew globally.
Take a look at the video below and share some of your views with us in the comments.
