In the ever-evolving landscape of African business, one event stands poised to redefine the narrative: The Africa Startup Ecosystem Builders Summit and Awards (ASEB). Born from the strategic minds at Setup A Startup, ASEB isn’t just an event—it’s a movement, a testament to the indomitable spirit of Africa’s startup ecosystem.
Forecasts indicate that the digital economy could add $300 billion to Africa’s GDP by 2025. Recognizing this potential, ASEB underscores the vital role of ecosystem builders in realizing this growth. Emphasizing the need for collective efforts, ASEB believes that harnessing Africa’s vast startup potential is achievable.
This Summit is structured on seven foundational pillars: trust, collaboration, shared goals, and a common language for nurturing the ecosystem. This approach elevates domestic and international startup scenarios by integrating local and broader strategies.
From Johannesburg’s Triumph to Nairobi’s Anticipation
After a groundbreaking debut in Johannesburg, which convened over 150 luminaries from 36 nations, ASEB is poised for its next chapter in Nairobi, Kenya, from December 6th to 8th. Renowned for its entrepreneurial verve and thriving startups, Nairobi promises to further the ASEB legacy. This choice follows the inaugural event’s overwhelming success, where the spotlight shone on 88 exceptional Ecosystem Builders across diverse sectors.
