Technology and telecommunication organisations worldwide are driving towards continuous innovation and disruption to enable the 4th Industrial Revolution. And one of the ways to embrace this rapid innovation is by enabling tech startups, who are often at the forefront of innovation. So, the interplay between technology startups and tech giants are imperative to the development of the African continent, and to ensure Africa plays a critical part in the new wave of digital disruption.

A number of startups are promoting tech solutions to African businesses, and the importance of startup innovation in tech, as well as the roles played by both startups and tech giants and the barriers and enablers are discussed in more detail during this parallel session.
