Making an impact

The GSMA Mobile for Development team drives innovation in digital technology to reduce inequalities in our world, bringing together mobile operator members, tech innovators, the development community and governments.

The three-day regional flagship event will explore the themes of Powering Digital, Accelerate Africa, and Fintech.

This year, the GSMA Mobile for Development team will once again be hosting our Development Theatre, providing a unique platform for insightful keynotes, panels and discussions across topics such as digital inclusion, gender, innovation for impact and more. The Mobile Money Leadership Forum also makes a welcome return.

Join our sessions and conversations to learn more about our research, insights and impact, plus get the opportunity to forge new partnerships.
