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

Overview

Returning for its fifth edition, Tech in Ghana (TIG) is a flagship event which takes place twice a year in Accra and London; bringing together founders, government officials, investors, and industry stakeholders in Ghana and the UK.

Since launching in February 2017, the conference has become a must-attend event in both countries and has positioned itself as the leading platform bringing together Ghana's tech ecosystem for global knowledge sharing, valuable networking and to showcase innovation.

This year's theme is Connecting Our Global Network: People, Opportunities & Industries, focused on conversations around how technology is fast driving globalisation and influencing how people, opportunities and industries connect to make lives better while growing economies.

In addition to insightful keynotes, the event will include a fintech panel discussion and a selection of deep-dive breakout sessions, driven by speakers from Ghana and the UK.
