EduTech Africa — which bills itself as Africa’s largest education conference and exhibition — aims to bring together edtech professionals and suppliers from across Africa’s education sector.

The Department of Basic Education endorsed event is expected to be attended by over 3500 edtech professionals and will feature over 50 free seminars and 150 speakers.

Mushongera said the offer is open to startups who provide the following :

  • Tablets, PCs and laptops
  • School equipment and outdoor suppliers
  • Classroom equipment and hardware

To apply, startups must contact Mushongera and provide the following: their company name, the year the company was founded, whether the company has received any external funding or not and if so how much they raised and whether the startup is owned by a larger organisation or not.

Those selected to exhibit at EduTech Africa 2019 will be provided with exhibition passes for team members, 2m² x 1m² floor space, marketing opportunity on EduTech Africa’s website as well as a post event report.

In addition, the startups also stand to benefit from an opportunity to meet with potential buyers, full access to the conference’s networking app.
