Offer a place of exchange and networking for the African tech ecosystem in France and elsewhere

Palabres consulting is an ecosystem of consulting turned to digital entrepreneurship, all our business philosophy is not based on competition, but on complementarity. It was therefore obvious for us to project this concept to the African tech ecosystem. By proposing a physical and conceptual place of exchanges, discoveries, opportunities and networking.

Our initial ambition through the Les Palabres afterwork is to organize an informal, relaxing moment to creatively address the various issues of our business environment. While previous editions have focused on digital transformation and agri-tech, the third edition focuses on the issues around fintech.
A new challenge facing African economies, the fintechs have upset the monetary, economic, social dynamics and power relations between individuals and traditional financial institutions.

To address this topic we receive four high-level speakers, each from a different angle will share their insight on the subject, all in pitch format.
Because this is our specificity, introduce keynote speeches, 15-minute pitches, by speakers usually present on much longer round tables. All with the aim of synthesizing the issues, synthesizing the experiences, synthesizing the solutions. A difficult but extremely rewarding exercise for the debate.

The “after work” organized on July 18th is dedicated to the theme of “Fintechs, creative financing for the financing of Africa”.

About The Author

CEO AfrikaTech

Comme beaucoup de personnes j’ai connu l’Afrique à travers des stéréotypes : l’Afrique est pauvre, il y a la guerre, famine… Je suis devenu entrepreneur pour briser ces clichés et participer à la construction du continent. J’ai lancé plusieurs entreprises dont Kareea (Formation et développement web), Tutorys (Plate-forme de e-learning), AfrikanFunding (Plate-forme de crowdfunding). Après un échec sur ma startup Tutorys, à cause d’une mauvaise exécution Business, un manque de réseau, pas de mentor, je suis parti 6 mois en immersion dans l’écosystème Tech au Sénégal. J’ai rencontré de nombreux entrepreneurs passionnés, talentueux et déterminés. A mon retour sur Paris je décide de raconter leur histoire en créant le média AfrikaTech. L'objectif est de soutenir les entrepreneurs qui se battent quotidiennement en Afrique en leur offrant la visibilité, les connaissances, le réseautage et les capitaux nécessaires pour réussir. L'Afrique de demain se construit aujourd'hui ensemble. Rejoignez-nous ! LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/boubacardiallo
