The Ignition: Innovate for Impact

We recognize the abundance of talented and ambitious young people across Africa who are developing innovative tech solutions and building careers in tech. However, these youths often lack a platform to showcase their skills and connect with others in the industry.

That's why we launched SwitchCon - to celebrate and empower the next generation of tech leaders in Africa. Our goal is to provide a space for youths to showcase their skills, learn from experts in the field, and connect with potential employers and mentors who can help them bring their solutions/careers to life.

Join us as we bridge the gap between the current state of technology in Africa and the global tech ecosystem.
