Founder Emerge Tech Summit/TechBooky, Paul O. Balo was quoted at the Press Conference that “Across the African continent, there has been a rise in demand for new technology in order to tackle the ‘numerous‘ challenges facing the continent. This demand has given rise to a new breed of developers from Nairobi to Johannesburg and to Lagos. Organisations have begun to gradually patronize local developers but there’s still a level of dissatisfaction among clients when they compare what they get locally with global standards. On the average, there are hundreds of thousands of Tech jobs (private and public contracts inclusive) out there without some of the best minds to fill them.”

One of the high points of the summit will be the pitching session that will span two days. About 100 Start-ups from over 200 delegates will be pitching where 10 EMERGE STARTUP MODELs will have access to different levels of business contracts signed with Emerge Tech Summit partners across the world.
