TechX Africa is an impressive opportunity to experience next generation thinking and philosophy fueled by woman in Tech, transporting you into the era of Purposeful Cost and Market disruption. It brings the local top ICT companies and world leaders in ICT, together with local small and emerging ICT entrepreneurs as well as women in technology to create a vehicle that allows ICT talent to be ported across Africa. The value the bigger companies bring to sme is in their partnerships that fosters technology and skills transfer through supply chain inclusion, local implementations and local support.

TechXAfrica was created to address some of the main challenges faced by entrepreneurs,these are amongst the top 5 challenges faced by African entrepreneurs:

• Attracting customers;
• Maintaining profitability;
• Increasing revenue;
• Uncertainty over economic conditions;
• Securing financing for expansion.

Attracting customers was pointed out by events Key speaker, the CEO of Technology Innovation Agency South Africa, Mr Barlow Manilal. He said that even though entrepreneurs are creating world class amazing solutions, it is still a major challenge for them to market their solutions and therefore fail within their sales strategy. It is thus imperative that we as a South African sme ourselves try to help other smme to gain visibility and sales traction not only within South Africa but the rest of Africa as well, hence TechXAfrica being the catalyst to bring everyone under one roof and to be able to port a combination of talents throughout Africa.

Other opportunities that the event creates is the networking of local ICT entrepreneurs with global ICT players to enable them to also market some of their innovations to these global players. We strongly advocate the integration of smme into supply chain opportunities. We also invited funders to the event to spot the talent and to give exhibitors access to funders and financiers.
