What is the Secret to East African Technology Success?


August Nairobi Salon - RSVP Now

We have all heard the buzz about Silicon Savannah. Is it justified? Is there something special about the Nairobi tech scene or is it, like some Nairobi real estate, over-sold?
  • Are there lessons for other countries trying to build their own communities of innovators? 
  • Insights for the investors piling into the Green City in the Sun?
  • What about the East African NGO sector pumping m-everything?
  • What can we learn about what works in Nairobi tech, what could be improved, and where we go from here?
Please RSVP now to join your technology and international development peers in a highly charged conversation with lead discussants Ben Lyon of Kopo Kopo and Mbwana Alliy of Savannah Fund, for a deep exploration of what makes the Nairobi start-up scene successful.

  Silicon Savannah: Fact or Fiction
  8-9:30am, Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
  Population Council, Kenya
  Ralph Bunche Road & Ngong Road
  Nairobi, Kenya (map)

We'll have hot coffee and mandazis for a morning rush, but seating is limited at Population Council's office in Nairobi. So RSVP ASAP to be confirmed for attendance - once we reach our 30-person capacity there will be a waitlist.

About the Technology Salon

subscribeThe Technology Salonâ„¢ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 30 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
