#Africa Showcase your African tech startup at CES 2017


The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which takes place each year in Las Vegas, is this year offering African startups the opportunity to showcase their products and solutions at the new Africa Tech Now Village.

Next year’s CES will feature Africa Tech Now, an event showcasing the African tech ecosystem, organised by International Boost and Djouman.

There will also be an Africa Tech Now Village, offering promising African startups the chance to demonstrate their innovations during the show.

“Being the world’s largest tech event, CES is an incredible place to get exclusive access to investors, buyers, clients and business partners,” the organisers said.

Applications are open until August 31 to showcase, with selected startups to exhibit their tech innovations in Las Vegas and get international exposure. The applications will be reviewed by a panel of international experts, who will select the 10 best startups at the end of September.

These startups will be given workshop training in advance of CES, and will participate in the main event as an exhibitor.

Applicant startups must be not more than three years old, have a product, service or app that is applicable to the consumer technology space, and be in the fields of Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, drones, 3D printing, e-health, ed-tech, virtual reality, e-commerce, cloud computing or the app economy.

Special attention will be given to “tech changing the world” innovations, such as innovations contributing to sustainability and inclusion, as well as startups that stand out in the field of transport, tourism and technology, given Air France is a partner of the event. The airline will offer flight tickets to three startups among the 10 selected as part of the Air France Award.
