During the GITEX Africa event held in Marrakech, Morocco this year, Microsoft announced the introduction of its first African Startups AI Fest, deemed to be the largest Microsoft Africa virtual event on the continent

The event’s primary focus is to inspire and support startups to accelerate their journey to market with the right AI-powered tech solutions. Attendees across the continent are welcome to access the event virtually. Scheduled to take place tomorrow at Johannesburg, South Africa, the event will bring together founders, entrepreneurs, business decision-makers, engineers and developers in the startups space from across the continent.

The event will also emphasise the significance of AI, its transformative power and urge startups to consider adopting this revolutionary technology to drive innovation and take their ideas, not only to local markets but a global stage. Attendees will also get an opportunity to hear the success stories of other startups on the continent, including those that have been supported over the years by Microsoft. 

Moreover, industry-specific webinars, pitch coaching sessions, investor community sessions will be organised along with insights on AI technologies and integration with the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor programme
