Tech in Ghana Conference London

THE LEADING PLATFORM BRINGING TOGETHER GHANA’S TECH ECOSYSTEM FOR GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE SHARING, VALUABLE NETWORKING, AND TO SHOWCASE INNOVATION.

Overview

Held twice a year, once in London and once in Accra; the Tech in Ghana Conference (TIGC ) supports Ghana’s burgeoning tech industry by providing a platform to highlight, engage, stimulate and connect with investors, government agencies, and key players and influencers.

The event launched in London in 2017 with a keynote speech from the UK Prime Minister's Trade Envoy to Ghana, Adam Afriyie. In the same year, the second event was opened for the first time in Ghana by Minister for Communications Honourable Ursula Owusu-Ekuful.

The Tech in Ghana Conference (TIGC) aims to explore three main areas:

  • How technology is disrupting norms and reshaping Ghana’s traditional industries
  • How tech companies and entrepreneurs are providing profitable local solutions
  • How regulators and policymakers are responding to this rapidly-evolving digital ecosystem

TIGC is the brain child of award-winning communications expert and entrepreneur Akosua Annobil, who in 2018 was announced by the Financial Times as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Black, Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Leaders in the UK tech sector.

In partnership with relevant entities, the event is organised by AB2020, her communications company focused on connecting Africa’s dynamic, global business community.
