From Monday, the 29th of  September, to Friday, the 2nd of October 2020, the SA Innovation Summit will be showcasing African innovation to the world at its Virtual365 Edition, which, for the first time ever, will be digital. The SA Innovation Summit is a major highlight on the African calendar highlighting, connecting, capacitating, and originating the best start-up talent from the continent.

To amplify this, the Summit has chosen to partner with African News Agency (ANA) as a media partner.

SA Innovation Summit Chairperson, Audrey Verhaeghe, says: “We are looking forward to discovering new opportunities when media, showcasing, thought leadership and the African tech start-up ecosystem start to merge.”

“The African News Agency is honoured and excited to confirm its strategic partnership with the South African Innovation Summit. We value this relationship and look forward to supporting the innovation and technology sectors, as well as entrepreneurs and SMMEs through this long-term partnership. Covid-19 has presented many challenges for businesses, but new opportunities also arise as we see events such as this Summit move into the virtual space, opening it up to even greater participation. Both through our journalism and our marketing programmes – and with our extensive reach on the African continent and here in South Africa – we at ANA believe we have a critical role to play in supporting the ecosystem of start-ups, innovators and technology players,” adds ANA CEO, Vasantha Angamuthu.
