Kigali to Host African Leadership Network Annual Gathering Again this November.

Over the past decade, Africa has slowly but surely built its foundation as a vibrant hub for innovation, entrepreneurship and technological advancement. From established organizations to game changing new startups, the mission has been the same: Africa needs to chart a new course in the world of business and technology – we are simply not just catching up. It is with this tone that in November, Kigali is set to open its doors to a multitude of events and powerful conversations that could shape the future of startups, tech and investments on the continent.

African Leadership Network’s Big Return

Among these many events is the return of the African Leadership Network Annual Gathering, a pan-African leadership and innovation gathering founded by Fred Swaniker (CEO, African Leadership Group) and Acha Leke (Chairman, McKinsey Africa).  Since 2010, ALN has convened some of Africa’s most influential and dynamic leaders to build relationships and ignite powerful collaborations. This November, we will be welcoming over 300 leaders including some of the continent’s most dynamic entrepreneurs as well as prominent figures from the global realms of business, politics, sports and entertainment.

Not just another networking event

ALN was founded on a powerful belief: leadership skills alone are not enough; every leader requires a network to amplify their impact. From Davos to Cannes, Twitter to Threads, today’s leaders have endless opportunities to build their networks. Yet, even within these spaces, they often struggle to build trust – the most important ingredient for meaningful collaboration. So, at ALN, the focus is on building trust through a continuous collision of diverse ideas, experiences and intentional cultivation of meaningful relationships.

This year’s Annual Gathering promises to be an invigorating experience filled with a fusion of interactive, thought-provoking and fun sessions that will delve into Africa’s future in today’s rapidly changing and digitally-driven world. Whether you are a startup founder, an investor or business leader seeking partnerships, you will have the opportunity to:

  • LEARN: about yourself, Africa, innovation in the face of crisis, digital transformation, entrepreneurship and leadership.
  • BUILD MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS: with some of the most influential people in Africa and the world. Startups can connect with potential mentors, investors, or collaborators who can propel your vision forward.
  • CONNECT WITH EXCEPTIONAL TALENT: expand your network and also meet those who can help fuel your organisation’s growth.
  • DISCOVER THE FUTURE OF AFRICAN TECH: get a front row seat to the latest innovations on the continent, identify promising startups, understand emerging tech trends, and potentially make investments that shape the continent’s future.

The FutureList: What’s Next in Tech

This year ALN has also partnered with The FutureList to host a curated deal room where startups can find the right partners or investors, and investors can spot the next big thing. As Fred Swaniker has noted from his experience, it’s often these relationships that make the difference in getting a startup off the ground.

A Can’t-Miss Week in Kigali

Beyond ALN, Kigali will also be hosting AfricaWeek by Norrsken and the Qatar Africa Business Forum in November. This makes Kigali the place to be for anyone interested in African tech. Startups can find their first big break, and investors might discover their next big investment.
