Mobile Africa happening

Mobile Brain Bank is a non-profit association supporting and promoting mobile entrepreneurship and start-up activities globally.

We are honored to invite you to Helsinki 30th of September 2010 to participate in Europe’s largest and most innovative happening on mobile opportunities in Africa. Most recently it has become apparent that mobile and ICT industry is turning strongly to Africa, supporting the fast uptake of mobile technology in the region. In order to help grow this momentum, we are organizing Europe’s largest and most innovative happening on mobile opportunities in Africa.

The day’s agenda is divided in three parts. The morning is reserved for corporate keynotes from Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, and inspirational entrepreneur speakers from South Africa and Kenya. In the afternoon, we will see a line-up of some 10-20 fresh and young mobile start-up companies from both Europe and Africa. Towards the evening we will launch a live web bridge to Mobile Web Africa conference in Johannesburg, and host a joint developer panel between the two conferences:
