Africa's Digital Transformation

[Francophone event] Startups : à la recherche de la « licorne » francophone

Thu 5 Nov
14:00 - 15:15 UTC
In partnership with Huawei

Sur les 2 milliards de dollars récoltés par les startups africaines en 2019, seuls 175 millions étaient à destination de l’Afrique francophone. Compte tenu de la crise du Covid, ces levées de fonds devraient chuter de près de 800 millions de dollars en 2020, et d’autant pour les acteurs francophones. Cadre réglementaire et fiscal, structures d’appui, culture entrepreneuriale, taille de marchés, freins aux usages digitaux… Quels sont les défis à relever pour que l’espace francophone rivalise avec des pays comme le Nigeria, le Kenya ou l’Afrique du Sud ? Comment tirer profit de l’accélération de la transformation digitale provoquée par la crise ?
