In search for Africa’s best tech startups, join us for the 1st stop of the AfricArena Virtual Startup Pitch Series – Rwanda!

The AfricArena Tour is going virtual in 2020!

Ordinarily, the AfricArena Tour would travel across the continent hosting pitch events in search for Africa’s best tech talent. Given the current circumstances, we have turned to virtual pitch sessions instead – in true entrepreneurial spirit!

This is call to Rwandan TECH STARTUPS, INVESTORS, and the African TECH ECOSYSTEM community and enthusiasts!

AfricArena exists to provide a platform where startups can tell their story, gain valuable networks and attain funding. The AfricArena Tour is the pre-selection process for the AfricArena Summit – an annual conference that showcases Africa’s best startups and innovators in front of an audience of local and international investors looking for world-class talent. AfricArena scours the major ecosystems of the continent in search of tech startups that have the potential to disrupt. (See the 2019 Edition of the Summit here!).

The Tour is virtual this year is giving the best Rwandan tech entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their business model and convince the expert judges why they should be advanced to pitch at the grand stage in Cape Town, South Africa.



Witness the best Africa has to offer in innovation and get a front-row seat into the future. Expand your perception of Africa’s tech ecosystem and get to connect with a broad spectrum of people,ideas, industries, organisations, and more.



AfricArena is calling on innovative tech-based startups in Rwanda to apply to pitch! APPLY HERE!

The WINNING startup will be crowned as “Best of the Ecosystem” – winning return flight and accommodation to showcase your business and represent your country at the AfricArena Summit in Cape Town in November.
