Africa is no longer the Dark Continent. Given the rate at which internet connectivity and data consumption is growing, it is natural to expect business practices to evolve.

Indigenous companies, foreign investors, and global players have made significant investment and continue to invest into the continent. While the future is far from clear, there are still opportunities for companies willing to take risk and to invest. This panel will investigate the opportunities available in an African market as well as discuss real-world experiences of some organisations that have taken the plunge.
