The voice of African tech


Afrobytes is creating the most influential tech event brand in Europe, dedicated to Africa’s burgeoning tech industry. It calls itself a marketplace gathering tech creatives, founders, practitioners and investors from all across the world into one place, to discuss, synergise and focus on the dynamic continent.

Both Founders of Afrobytes have been listed in the 2018 list of the ‘Top 100 Most Creative People in Business’ by Fast Company, for “giving African tech a global stage”.

Afrobytes founders Haweya Mohamed and Ammin Youssouf, who originate from Somalia and the Comoros Islands respectively, are using their decades-long backgrounds in digital marketing and communication to bring the African tech scene to interested markets, which include France, Hong Kong, the US and the Netherlands. Using their backgrounds they also aim to change the negative perceptions many hold of the continent, which they say is limiting investment. Changing Africa’s keywords from aid, conflict, and corruption, to innovation, mobile, growth, and youth is their aim, and they are beginning with themselves, with regards to how they represent their brand and events.
Acknowledging their aligned message relating to Africa’s perceptions, Afrobytes sought De Charles to help articulate and propagate their company message and brand. Being based in Paris, Afrobytes’ recognised the importance of De Charles pushing and controlling their narrative in London, for the many Anglophone Africans and technology and investment institutions based within the city.
