Silicon Valley & Africa – Documentary screening and panel discussion

Silicon Valley & Africa: Growth & Challenges

In hyper-competitive Silicon Valley, African entrepreneurs pursue their passion of building the next big technology company. Over 70% of Silicon Valley founders come from outside of the United States; yet, only a fraction of them come from Africa.

In partnership with INSEEC U., Voice of America invites you to a screening of its documentary, Beyond the Unicorn: Africans Making IT in Silicon Valley. A panel discussion examining the growth and challenges for African entrepreneurs on the continent and in Silicon Valley, will follow and will stream live on VOA’s Facebook page.
