“This year we saw entries from 52 countries and are delighted to showcase tech innovators from across the continent for our fifth edition. The AppsAfrica.com Innovation Awards provide an unbiased platform for the smaller guys to compete on a level playing field against bigger corporates, who typically dominate Awards elsewhere which is why we first set them up in 2015. Congratulations to all the winners we look forward to having them all join us at Africa Tech Summit in Rwanda next year, and a special word of thanks all entrants, our expert judging panel, sponsors and supporting partners across Africa who help each year” shared Andrew Fassnidge founder of AppsAfrica.com.
