Showcasing African Innovation
For over 25 years DEMO has built an unmatched track record of selecting, promoting and commercializing some of the most game-changing products the world has ever seen. DEMO Africa is the launch pad for African technology and trends, attracting a global audience of over 2,000 people to experience the finest African innovations as they venture into the markets. Selected startups are introduced to an audience of investors, corporate acquirers, strategic partners and global media practitioners.
Our African Pedigree
DEMO Africa is one of the flagship initiatives of Lions@frica, a public-private alliance aimed at enhancing and deepening the start-up and innovation ecosystems of targeted fast-growing African economies. Over the last six years, we have connected over 3,000 African start-ups to the global innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, helped create more than 2,000 high-paying jobs, and mentored more than 250 startup teams across the continent. Over 30 DEMO Africa winners have ventured on to Silicon Valley through the Lions@frica innovation tour to partake in deep knowledge exchanges and engage the global innovation ecosystem
After a six-year run that saw us begin in Nairobi in 2012 and 2013, and travel across to Lagos for the next two years, with our most recent events in Johannesburg over the last couple of years, the North African region was our planned destination for the 2018 and 2019 editions of DEMO Africa, and we are proud to have Morocco as our host country over the next two editions.
