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.


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.


We bring digital, connectivity and policy leaders together, hosting the debates that define society’s relationship with technology, showcasing cutting-edge technology demos that enable socio-economic growth and driving innovation by introducing investors to visionary startups.


MWC Kigali will partner with African Union, Africa CDC 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.
