KENYA: a beautiful country in East Africa of over 56 million people, is not only known for the Big Five and the Great Wildebeest Migration, its world record-breaking athletes, its rich biodiversity, award-winning white sand beaches, and great safari destinations, but has also become not only a regional powerhouse in East Africa but for the wider African continent and Middle East and Africa (MEA) region as a whole.

Particularly, its capital and largest city, Nairobi, is even dubbed “Silicon Savannah” due to its strong tech ecosystem, acting as a regional hub. Both multinational companies (MNCs), and those specifically in the tech and fintech sphere, have made strong investments in the country, boosting foreign direct investment (FDI) in it too. It is in fact said that Kenya is the cradle of mobile money (mobile phone-based money payments/transactions), thanks to M-Pesa.

It may come as no surprise that AIJA’s very first African seminar will take place right in the epicentre of it all, the green city in the sun, Nairobi!

From 22 to 24 March 2023, AIJA will gather local, regional and international lawyers, in-house counsels, tech professionals and investors (VCs, PE funds) who are personally or through their clients involved in the tech industry, to network, learn and discuss latest trends in law, tech, sustainability, funding and industry best practices.

Come join us in Nairobi on a magical trip through the Silicon Savannah vibrant legal and tech scene and best global practices that foster inclusive and sustainable business practices.
