Digital Economy
Pavillon Niger
16:00 to 17:00

In this solution-oriented session, digital start-ups explored ways to kick-start their business with a number of experts. Participants were encouraged to seek advice on various important topics including access to markets and capital, taxation, talent and skills development and more. The outcome of the discussions will contribute further to the development of the African Start-up Manifesto initiated by Start-up Europe Comes to Africa network. Discussion in the groups covered the public policies needed for start-ups to scale; how digital start-ups from Africa and the EU can cooperate; access to information about the various competitions, foundations, programmes and funds available for accessing finance; and the specific requirements of digital start-ups in the African context?
