Our mission

MWC Kigali convenes the industry, combines technology with purpose, fuels innovation and advances the digital economy of the continent – all for a better future.

Our Why

We believe that connecting is always the answer… a ping, a handshake, a smile, a phone call. True sustainable, impact for good is only possible when the entire technology ecosystem joins forces; the technicians trialling in labs, the analyst reviewing the papers, regulators championing innovation – and the leaders adding more seats at the table to harness diversity of thought.

How we do it

We bring the digital and connectivity ecosystem together by hosting the debates which will define society’s relationship with technology – and showcasing cutting-edge technology demos that will redraw the boundaries of possibility. We also fuel innovation and grow ideas by introducing investors to visionary startups and guiding governments in the transition from physical to digital.

What we do

MWC Kigali will partner with both Shared Value Initiative Africa and Smart Africa, co-locating all three critical and influential events to create the single most impactful gathering in the continent. MWC Kigali will be attended by global mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners. It is the best place to be seen, to exhibit ground-breaking products and technologies – and to make remarkable connections with our industry’s senior decision-makers, creators and innovators.
