Day 1 of East Africa Com was a roaring success!
Throughout the course of today's panels, workshops and keynotes, we gained a great insight into the most pertinent developments, challenges and accomplishments of the ICT and tech sector in East Africa. Here is day 1 summed up in 5 quotes:
Tony Wood of @First Consulting made this bold statement in his Introduction and Chairman’s Welcome and it rings true. The digital disruption is happening, from start-ups in their infancy to huge multinational corporations.
“Every company is a tech company”
“The African model is a collaborative one”
“I don’t see 5G LTE being rolled out by 2020”
“We don’t think of Netflix as the competition”
“We believe connectivity is a basic human right”
Tomorrow we'll have another highlight round up, with a full event report to come.
For those who couldn't make it today head down to the Radisson Blu, Upper Hill Nairobi tomorrow to benefit from the great content, networking and supplier exhibits and showcases.
East Africa Com runs until 19 May. Visit our website for further information.
